David Moyes says there is "a good chance" Robin Van Persie will recover from toe and groin problems after the Dutchman missed out on Champions League duties in midweek. If the Dutchman fails to make it, Javier Hernandez could get the nod or Shinji Kagawa could come into contention, allowing Wayne Rooney to move into the more advanced forward berth. Moyes also insisted that Marounae Fellaini would be fit to play despite looking out of form following his wrist injury. However, England duo Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley remained on the sidelines.
Ryan Shawcross is a doubt for the Potters after failing to train all week due to illness. Geoff Cameron is hoping to shake off the calf complaint that forced him out of the previous match at home to West Brom. If fit, the US international is expected to oust Andy Wilkinson at right-back.
