This Monday evening, Manchester United welcome Stoke City, to Old Trafford, for a Premier League fixture.

For United it is the chance to add another three points to their total against a side that are currently manager-less after sacking the former Manchester United striker, Mark Hughes.

Ahead of the game we`ve cobbled together some early team-news.

Starting with Manchester United:

Jose Mourinho could welcome Antonio Valencia back to the starting eleven, the defender has been absent for the last four weeks with a hamstring injury.

Ashley Young is still unavailable as he is currently serving a suspension.

Unavailable through injury are Michael Carrick, Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Continuing with our visitors Stoke City:

The side from the Potteries could welcome back the former Manchester United youngster, Ryan Shawcross to their defence with the centre-back having recovered from a calf problem.

Stoke could also select their new signing Moritz Bauer.

However, Erik Pieters and Bruno Martens Indi will require fitness tests t ensure they have overcome hamstring and groin injuries respectively.
