Manchester United entertain Stoke City at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will pick for the game:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea will get a recall in goal after being rested for Thursday night’s 1-0 Europa League win over Zorya so Sergo Romero will drop back to the bench.

Defence: Mourinho is also expected to bring Daley Blind back in to the back four with Marcos Rojo set to make way while Antonio Valencia should come back in for Timothy Fosu-Mensah after being rested in midweek.

Eric Bailly has enjoyed a superb start to life at Old Trafford and the youngster should continue alongside Chris Smalling at the back this weekend.

Midfield: Ander Herrera was given a breather on Thursday so the Spaniard should come back in to the side to face Stoke with Marouane Fellaini dropping out but Paul Pogba is almost certain to keep his place in the middle of the park with the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin and Michael Carrick having to make do with places on the bench.

Attack: Wayne Rooney made a successful return from a minor knock with a substitute appearance against Zorya so the skipper could find himself back in the starting eleven this weekend.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will once again lead the line up front while Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata could be preferred to Antony Martial and Jesse Lingard on the wings.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
