’s pursuit of fourth spot continues today with a trip to the Britannia Stadium to face one of the most physical sides in the Premier League. All eyes will be on Juan but as the recent win over showed, it could well be Robin Van Persie that’s the difference between the two sides.

A win over ’s Stoke could prove vital and following United’s win here in the Cup with a weakened side, there’s every reason for the Reds to be confident.

Here’s my predicted XI for the trip to Stoke:

David , Rafael, Jonny , Phil , Patrice Evra, Tom Cleverley, Darren Fletcher, Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney, , Robin Van Persie.
