THE Potters welcome Premier League Champions, Manchester United to the Britannia Stadium for tonight's Capital One Cup Quarter Final clash (kick-off 7:45pm).

It will be the second time the sides have met this season after City narrowly suffered league defeat at Old Trafford back in late October.

A place in the Semi-Finals is at stake for the winner as we take a look at the facts and figures which separate the two Clubs in the League Cup.

WINNERS:

- Manchester United have lifted the League Cup on four occasions (1991/92, 2005/06, 2008/09, 2009/10)

- The Potters meanwhile famously lifted the League Cup under Club great, Tony Waddington (1971/72)

LEAGUE CUP HEAD-TO-HEAD:

- The Potters hold an advantage in terms of League Cup action, having beaten United twice in five Cup meetings between the sides.

- The two sides met no fewer than seven times in League, FA Cup and League Cup action during Stoke's famous 1971/72 League Cup campaign.
The League Cup tie went to two replays when the sides couldn't be separated, before the Potters earned victory with a 2-1 win at the third time of asking in November 1971.

Games Played: 5 Stoke Wins: 2 Drew: 2 Man United Wins: 1

LAST TIME IN THE LEAGUE CUP:

- The last League Cup clash between the Club's was a two-legged affair in Round 2 during the 1993/94 season, when United progressed to Round 3 thanks to their one and only League Cup win over Stoke.

The Potters went out as United went through 3-2 on aggregate, despite Stoke beating the Reds in the first leg at the Victoria Ground.

22nd September 1993 | League Cup Round 2, First-Leg: Victoria Ground
Stoke City 2 (Mark Stein 2 goals)
Manchester United 1 (Dion Dublin) 

6th October 1993 | League Cup Round 2, Second-Leg: Old Trafford
