STAT ATTACK

Head-to-head

Stoke have not beaten Manchester United in the league since December 1984, and have not won at Old Trafford since April 1976.

United have won their last eight home league games against Stoke – those results include two 5-0 victories and a 4-0 win.

Both United’s goals in the 2-0 win in this corresponding fixture last season came from the penalty spot.

Javier Hernandez has scored four goals in his four games against Stoke. Robin van Persie has scored six Premier League goals against Stoke in his career, including in each of the last four matches.

Man United

With 17 goals so far, United are the top scorers in the Premier League. Their last 11 league goals have been scored by 11 different players.

United have already lost twice in their opening seven league games – they only lost once before Christmas in last season’s Premier League.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side were losing in five of their opening seven Premier League matches this season – but they fought back to win three of those matches.

United’s defeat to Tottenham in their last match at Old Trafford was their first home league defeat of 2012.

Paul Scholes is waiting to make his 400th Premier League start for Manchester United.

Wayne Rooney became England’s fifth-highest goalscorer during the international break, but has yet to find the net for

Manchester United this season. His international and club team-mate Danny Welbeck, who scored twice against San Marino last week, is also yet to score a goal for United this season.

Stoke City

Stoke have drawn nine of their last 13 Premier League matches.

Tony Pulis’s side have not won any of their last 13 Premier League away games (D6, L7), scoring just six goals.

The Potters have scored only one second-half goal in this season’s top flight.

Stoke’s Michael Owen made just six Premier League starts in three seasons at Old Trafford, and 31 league appearances overall. He has scored 149 Premier League goals in total.

According to Opta, Peter Crouch has contested more aerial duels than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues this season. Crouch could make his 300th Premier League appearance, while Robert Huth is on 199 Premier League appearances.

CaughtOffside Prediction: Man United to ease past the Potters in a 3-0 victory
