Manchester United predicted XI v Stoke City

Football News

Manchester United welcome Stoke City to Old Trafford on Saturday, hoping to secure their fourth Premier League victory of the campaign.

The Red Devils currently sit eighth in the Premier League table and desperately require a morale-boosting win this weekend - even if they can't move up a position because of the four-point gap between themselves and seventh-placed Everton.

Moyes is expected to stick with most of the players who secured a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

However, we predict a few alterations from the side which beat La Real.

First and foremost, Robin van Persie is expected to come in for Javier Hernandez after returning from injury.

It's also thought that player-coach Ryan Giggs will make way for Marouane Fellaini, who was left on the substitutes' bench in mid-week.

The only other noble chance could come at centre-back, where one of Phil Jones or Jonny Evans is likely to make way for the fit again Nemanja Vidic.

Meanwhile, we expect Shinji Kagawa to retain his place in the starting line-up ahead of Adnan Januzaj after an encouraging performance in United's last outing.

Manchester United's predicted XI:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea

Left-back: Patrice Evra

Centre-back: Jonny Evans

Centre-back: Nemanja Vidic

Right-back: Rafael

Central midfield: Michael Carrick

Central midfield: Marouane Fellaini

Left-wing: Shinji Kagawa

Attacking-midfield: Wayne Rooney

Right-wing: Antonio Valencia

Striker: Robin van Persie
