not been involved in any Stoke games this season, but did referee the Reds’ recent Capital One Cup win over Newcastle. Taylor has distributed 12 yellow cards and one red this campaign.
Betting: History suggests United should have little trouble seeing off Stoke City. The Reds have won their last nine home encounters against the Potters and are available at 3/10 to repeat the trick on Saturday (draw is 4/1 and Stoke are 9/1 shots). That price on United won’t make you rich though, so get on the 11/10 that the Reds win a game of Under Four Goals. Stoke are tough to break down but have scored just one goal at OT in 32 years, so a low-scoring home victory looks most likely.

Rivals watch: After the international break, the Premier League returns with a bang this weekend. Spurs host Chelsea at midday on Saturday before Manchester City travel to West Brom, Liverpool host Reading and Arsenal take on Norwich.
