Man United v Stoke preview
Team news ahead of Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash between Manchester United and Stoke at Old Trafford.
Ashley Young returns to the United squad after a two-month absence ahead of the game against the Potters.
Young has recovered from a knee injury and is in contention to face Tony Pulis' men.
Chris Smalling (foot) will not be considered even though he is closing in on full fitness.
Stoke boss Tony Pulis will assess the condition of Glenn Whelan and Michael Owen ahead of the game.
Midfielder Whelan, who came off in the 0-0 draw at Liverpool with a hamstring problem which kept him out of the Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifiers against Germany and the Faroe Islands, is rated "50-50" by Pulis.
The manager has also said he expects striker Owen, missing from the Liverpool game after tweaking his groin, to only be fit enough for a place on the bench at best, but defender Andy Wilkinson is available again after completing a three-match suspension.
Man United (from): De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Buttner, Valencia, Nani, Fletcher, Anderson, Scholes, Carrick, Cleverley, Giggs, Kagawa, Rooney, Van Persie, Hernandez, Welbeck.
