CONFIRMED: Herrera, Pogba, Mata & Rashford start against Stoke

Manchester United face Stoke City at Old Trafford in the Premier League this afternoon. United have beat Stoke in all matches at the Theatre of Dreams in the Premier League, all eight of them. Many will expect that record to be extended later this afternoon with Mark Hughes’ side sitting at the bottom of the league table with two points in six matches, which is poor form to be heading to Old Trafford in. Stoke could arrive playing like Barcelona like some teams can appear to play like against United like it is their cup final or something. I fully expect United to open up Stoke’s defence much like they did against Leicester City just over a week ago, which will send United into the international break in high spirits, readying themselves for a clash with Liverpool at Anfield when league football returns for us on Monday 17th October 2016. Here are the starting XI and list of substitutes for both sides this afternoon.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Blind;

Herrera, Pogba;

Lingard, Mata, Rashford;



Romero; Darmian; Memphis, Martial, Carrick, Fellaini; Rooney

Stoke City:


Johnson, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Pieters;

Cameron, Whelan, Allen;

Shaqiri, Bony, Arnautovic


Given; Bardsley; Adam; Diouf, Walters Crouch, Bojan
