Radamel Falcao starts alongside Robin van Persie again despite the pair drawing a blank in the recent 0-0 draw away to Tottenham Hotspur, while Wayne Rooney continues in his new midfield role.

Antonio Valencia has not returned to action in defence, but Luke Shaw is back to take his place on the left-hand side, meaning Ashley Young moves to the right wing-back slot.

Meanwhile, there is no place for in-form striker Bojan Krkic in Stoke’s starting lineup, with the home side fielding Mame Biram Diouf alongside Peter Crouch upfront.
