Mourinho announces line-up for Stoke

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has named his team for Sunday’s Premier League match with Stoke City (KO 12:00 BST).

The Reds are unchanged from last weekend’s 4-1 win over Leicester City, as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata keep their places behind striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

There are four alterations from Thursday’s 1-0 victory over Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League – David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Daley Blind and Ander Herrera replace Sergio Romero, Tim Fosu-Mensah, Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini.

Captain Wayne Rooney will start on an attack-minded bench, with Fellaini, Anthony Martial and Memphis also among the substitutes.

Phil Jones is the only absentee, with Mourinho confirming on Friday the defender faces “more weeks” on the sidelines as he recovers from a knee injury.

United: De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Blind; Pogba, Herrera; Lingard, Mata, Rashford; Ibrahimovic.

Subs: Romero, Darmian, Carrick, Fellaini, Martial, Memphis, Rooney.

Stoke: Grant, Johnson, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Pieters, Cameron, Whelan, Allen, Shaqiri, Bony, Arnautovic.

Subs: Given, Bardsley, Adam, Diouf, Walters, Crouch, Bojan.

The Reds are seeking a fourth successive win in all competitions against a Stoke City who are still looking for their first Premier League victory this season.
