There is also a start for Ashley Young, with Phil Jones and Tom Cleverley in midfield. Darren Fletcher is on the bench once more, as is Shinji Kagawa and Wilfried Zaha.

Stoke, meanwhile, rotate some players but have former United defender Ryan Shawcross in defence. Asmir Begovic is rested for Thomas Sorensen, but Peter Crouch and Stephen Ireland both start.
