Manchester United forwards Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck will both be pushing for starting slots alongside Wayne Rooney in Saturday's Barclays Premier League game at Stoke.

Hernandez has made a rapid recovery from the shin injury he sustained in last weekend's win over Chelsea, while Welbeck returned from a hamstring problem in the midweek Carling Cup success at Leeds.
