Radamel Falcao has been challenged by his manager to make his presence known or be allowed to return to AS Monaco at the end of the season with no chance of a permanent move to Manchester and the Colombian will be keen to make a difference.
Stoke were frustrated to lose to Liverpool over the weekend, but in the end they failed to convert the chances they created. If Bojan Krkic is in the same frame of mind against the Red Devils as he was against the Reds he is certain to cause the back line of LVG a lot of headaches.
Wayne Rooney joined the walking wounded of United over the weekend while Victor Moses has been joined by Steve Sidwell and Glenn Whelan over the weekend for Stoke as Mark Hughes will likely have to name a more attacking style midfield than he would have liked against his attack heavy former side.
Manchester United XI: De Gea: Valencia, Smalling, Rojo, Young; Fellaini, Carrick, Mata; Rooney; Falcao, Persie.
Stoke XI: Begovic: Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters; Adam, N’Zonzi; Walters, Bojan, Arnautovic; Diouf.
