Sir Al­ex Fer­guson: “Man­chester Uni­ted ex­per­i­enced a night­mare train­ing ses­sion on Fri­day wi­th Mi­chael Car­rick, Jon­athan Evans, and Way­ne Roo­ney all pulling up. Evans tho­ught that he might be all-right, but in the warm-up he was of no use so we had to make that change. Then we lost Javi­er Her­nandez and the pen­et­ra­tion and speed he gives us, but we still had chances to win the mat­ch.” Sto­ke City Te­am: As­mir Be­gov­ic, Andy Wilkin­son, Ry­an Shaw­cross, Jon­athan Woodgate, Rory De­lap, Marc Wil­son, Mat­thew Eth­er­ing­ton, Jer­maine Pen­nant, Glenn Whelan, Jon­athan Wal­ters, Pe­ter Crouch.
