Follow live text commentary as Stoke City host Manchester United at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday morning at 1330 GMT, 0830 EST.

United should be either knackered from a draining week of drama or bolstered by Wayne Rooney signing a new five-year contract. Alex Ferguson's side is unbeaten over eight Premier League matches, but have drawn three on the trot.

If the United manager plays his best players, like Scholes, Fletcher and Berbatov, together, then we'll definitely be looking at some goals here.

Stoke have won three of their last five and can certainly afford to lose to the far bigger club today. When the North Staffordshire club loses, they usually do so quite horrifically. Here's to a Berbatov brace.

See you live at 0530 PST or 1330 local time.
