Manchester United face Stoke City at Old Trafford chasing three points in a bid to start climbing the Barclays Premier League table.

Mark Hughes brings his Potters side back to his old stamping ground as the Reds strive to make up for the disappointment of conceding a late equaliser to Southampton last weekend.

We preview the match with MUTV's Helen Evans as she is joined by's Adam Marshall and special guest Danny Higginbotham, who played for both United and Stoke at the top level. 

The discussion focuses on the selection dilemmas facing David Moyes, the threat posed by Hughes' side and also the fact that both managers are trying to impose their own influence on their new clubs.

As usual, Nick Coppack brings us some statistical nuggets ahead of the encounter including an interesting fact relating to Robin van Persie's record against the team from the Britannia Stadium.
