Manchester United will be looking to extend the only remaining 100 per cent record in the Premier League when they travel to Stoke City on Saturday.



United's record after three games reads nine points, 10 goals scored and zero conceded to set the pace in the early stages of the season.



But Stoke have already toppled one title contender this season as loanee Jese scored on his debut to down Arsenal in August.

Mark Hughes is yet to lose to United since Jose Mourinho's appointment - two 1-1 draws last season - so one record will end at the bet365 Stadium.

Team News

Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross will miss out due to a back injury.

Latest signing and fellow centre-half Kevin Wimmer could make his debut in the absence of Shawcross and midfielder Darren Fletcher is hoping to shake off a knee injury in time to face his former club.

Mame Diouf (knee) could also return to contention, but winger Maxim Choupo-Moting is doubtful after straining his hamstring while on international duty with Cameroon.
