Owen replaces Hernandez.
Stoke's Glenn Whelan is booked for a lunge on Patrice Evra.
Frank: lets hope this team dont roll over for utd,
jamie from county fermanagh: I think this will be a physical test for united and will suffer greatly from set-pieces. However I think fergies men have it in them to win this one 4-2 with hernandez with two and young and anderson with one a piece.
Terry from Panama: When was the last time a team went all season without a defeat? This could be the game that pulls the reds back to earth.

John from Sydney fancies an upset, with: Stoke 2-1 Man Utd. Crouch and Walters(pen).
Michael expects United to pull out the stops in the second half, with: 4 - 1 to united. United to score first and first half to end 1- 1.
Ross adds: Think Stoke could do it here, 2-0 with Etherington getting both! Here's hoping!
ikemble is first out the blocks, with: Man Utd 3 to Stoke 2 with Hernandez scoring two and Jones one while Walters and Crouch score one apiece for stoke.
