Antonio Valencia has been ruled out of Manchester United's Premier League encounter with Stoke on Sunday, which kicks-off at 4pm.

The Ecuador winger suffered an ankle injury against Tottenham a fortnight ago and has now been sent on his holidays early by Sir Alex Ferguson.

The United boss reported no other injury concerns ahead of a game his side must win to stand any chance of retaining the title.

United (from): Van der Sar, Kuszczak, Foster, Neville, O'Shea, Rafael, De Laet, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Carrick, Hargreaves, Scholes, Fletcher, Park, Gibson, Obertan, Giggs, Nani, Berbatov, Rooney, Macheda, Diouf.
