Jonathan Walters was the match winner as Stoke beat Arsenal in last season’s meeting, with his late spot kick the difference.

Hughes is once again without numerous first team players, with the likes of Robert Huth, Victor Moses and Steve Sidwell all out injured.

Oussama Assiadi and Marko Arnautovic are set for wide midfield roles, with Stephan Ireland likely to miss out for Stoke.

Mame Biram Diouf will lead the line despite missing golden chances to earn Stoke a point at Old Trafford.
