WILSON PALACIOS was handed his first Premier League start of the season at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon as boss Mark Hughes made three changes to his starting line-up.
The Honduran international was included in the side at the expense of Charlie Adam, whilst Geoff Cameron overcame a calf injury in time to feature with Peter Crouch also being recalled.
Cameron's return at full-back meant a spot on the bench for Andy Wilkinson, as well as Oussama Assaidi, who was replaced in the team by England international Crouch.
STOKE CITY: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross (c), Huth, Pieters; Walters, Nzonzi, Palacios, Assaidi, Arnautovic; Crouch. Subs: Sorensen, Wilkinson, Adam, Whelan, Wilson, Assaidi, Jones.
