Manchester United host Stoke City at Old Trafford on Monday night hoping to build on recent victories over Everton and Derby County, putting further distance between themselves and their disappointing form over Christmas.

The Red Devils will be the first side to face Stoke since they parted ways with manager Mark Hughes, and will look to take advantage of the Potters’ recent poor run.

Aside from injuries to Zlatan Ibrahimović, Eric Bailly, Michael Carrick and Antonio Valencia, José Mourinho will largely be able to field a full-strength side.
