Confirmed - Stoke City v Manchester United line-ups - Moyes names strong side

Manchester United travel to Stoke City in the last eight of the League Cup, kick-off from the Britannia at 19:45 GMT.

Stoke City: Sorensen, Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters, Walters, Palacios, Ireland, Whelan, Assaidi, Crouch

Subs: Begovic, Muniesa, Pennant, Jones, Arnautovic, Adam, Wilkinson

Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Cleverley, Jones, Anderson, Young, Welbeck

Subs: Johnstone, Chicharito, Nani, Fletcher, Büttner, Zaha, Kagawa

Manchester United will head into this game full of confidence after a comprehensive win in their last game against Aston Villa in the Premier League.

David Moyes makes changes to the side that played at Aston Villa but the eleven he’s put out will be confident following a 4-0 demolition of Norwich City in the last round.

Moyes has been under a lot of pressure so far this season and this is a chance for his United team to move into the semi-finals and a step closer to a final at Wembley and potential silverware.

Stoke will see themselves as the underdogs but they have the home advantage and the Britannia is never an easy ground to go to.

They secured their place in the quarter-finals with a hard earned win at Birmingham City, edging out the Championship side on penalties after the teams were locked at 4-4 after extra time.
