Robin van Persie is set to return for Manchester United's Barclays Premier League encounter with Stoke at Old Trafford.

The Holland striker missed the Champions League win over Real Sociedad with a combination of niggling injuries, but has recovered and could partner Wayne Rooney.

Danny Welbeck (knee) and Tom Cleverley (calf) are unlikely to figure as United look to record an 11th successive home win against the Potters.

Skipper Ryan Shawcross and defender Geoff Cameron are Stoke's major doubts ahead of Saturday's trip to Manchester United.

Shawcross has not trained all week due to illness, whilst Cameron missed last week's draw with West Brom after picking up a calf injury.

Mark Hughes' men are looking to improve the paltry tally of four goals scored but Stoke have not won at Old Trafford since 1976 and have lost on their last 10 visits.

Provisional squads

Manchester United: De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Rafael, Smalling, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Fabio, Valencia, Nani, Fellaini, Carrick, Giggs, Anderson, Young, Zaha, Januzaj, Kagawa, Rooney, Van Persie, Hernandez.

Stoke: Begovic, Sorensen, Palacios, Cameron, Huth, Wilkinson, Shawcross, Munessa, Pieters, Walters, Pennant, Etherington, Whelan, Jones, Adam, Wilson, Ireland, Nzonzi, Assaidi, Arnautovic, Crouch.
