Manchester United will look to extend their perfect start to the league season away at Stoke City in Saturday’s evening kick-off.
Stoke City have made a solid start to the league campaign and drew 1-1 with West Brom before the international break.
Peter Crouch’s late equaliser means Stoke have four points from three difficult fixtures.
Manchester United were too strong for Leicester City a fortnight ago, easing to a 2-0 success at Old Trafford.
Despite a missed Romelu Lukaku penalty, goals from Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini means United have a two point advantage at the top.
Both league meetings last term finished 1-1, with Wayne Rooney becoming Manchester United’s record goalscorer thanks to a late leveller at the Britannia.
Stoke have lost just one of their last five matches against Manchester United!

Stoke could name the same XI that drew with West Brom, meaning new signing Kevin Wimmer will make do with a substitute role.
They are likely to continue with a 3-4-3 formation, although Saido Berahino will again be on the bench.
Manchester United could include Ander Herrera for the first time this season with United set to line up in a 4-3-3 formation.
Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are banned for the mid-week Champions League fixture so both are certain to start here.

Stoke City (3-4-3): Butland; Zouma, Shawcross, Martins Indi; Cameron, Allen, Fletcher, Pieters; Shaqiri, Jese, Choupo-Moting
