Stoke boss Tony Pulis will name the same starting XI for the third game running in Sunday's Barclays Premier League showdown against title contenders Manchester United.
The Potters have responded to their 7-0 drubbing at Chelsea in impressive fashion with a draw against Everton and a win at Fulham, and Pulis will keep faith with his charges despite the return of captain Abdoulaye Faye (thigh), who will have to make do with a place on the bench.
Asmir Begovic will continue in goal with Thomas Sorensen recovering from a dislocated elbow.
Team (from): Begovic, Huth, Abdoulaye Faye, Shawcross, Collins, Higginbotham, Lawrence, Whelan, Whitehead, Delap, Etherington, Kitson, Fuller, Tuncay, Sidibe, Pugh, Wilkinson, Moult, Beattie, Amdy Faye, Diao, Simonsen.
