  • Stoke 0 Man Utd 2. David Moyes' men make their way into the Capital One Cup semi-finals. Focus switches back to the league for the Potters.

  • Jones over halfway. Ball then sent out to Valencia. Rafael still bombing forward, but United opt against sending over a cross. One pass too many in the end. Stoke can't get a hold of the ball and that should be about it.

  • Very ambitious effort from Adam. He lets fly from 35 yards out. Ball never troubles the target and De Gea can watch it flash harmlessly wide.

  • Crouch frustrated as he is forced wide and then sends a poor cross straight out of play as he spins onto his right foot. Groans in the stands. Home support know this isn't going to be their night.

  • Three minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • United happy to keep hold of the ball and tease Stoke. Visitors are forced backwards, but always seem to have a man available. Jones then unable to loop a pass over the top for Young to latch on to.

  • United just about there now. Away support making all of the noise now. Hosts can't get a hold of the ball. United able to play across midfield. Fletcher looking to get involved as much as possible.

  • Young nutmegs Adam and is then blocked off. Free-kick to United wide on their left and they will be in no hurry to take it. When they do, they go short and backwards. Young then flicks the ball through to Sorensen.

  • Another decent delivery from Cameron, who has done well tonight. Evans has to dive towards his own goal to put the ball behind. He limps away holding his hamstring. Corner flicked out by Fletcher.

  • Panic in the Stoke box as Valencia crosses, but Hernandez can't force the ball home despite having two bites of the cherry. Stoke counter and Arnautovic forces a corner. Adam's delivery is cleared to Ireland on the edge of the box. His first-time effort sails into the stands.

  • Walter bumped off the ball by Young, who tracks all the way back to help out. United calm and composed at the back as they work the ball out to Rafael in space. Stoke chasing shadows a bit. Hernandez brings Fletcher into play in the final third, but he opts against a shot.

  • Walters can't force his way through on the edge of the box. Jones able to ride a challenge and run the ball out for United. Keep-ball from them until Evans drills long.

  • Stoke win a throw, but go backwards from it. United press and keep the Potters heading the wrong way. They need to get the ball forward quickly.

  • Welbeck makes his way off to be replaced by Fletcher. Good opportunity for the Scot to get some minutes under his belt and help to see this game out. Welcome change for the United followers.

  • United force another corner as they ready Fletcher for action. Young clips the ball in. Sorensen comes out to meet the delivery, but is caught underneath it. He is let off the hook as no-one is arriving round the back.

  • De Gea happy to start playing the clock and take as long as possible in getting rid of the ball. United can't keep hold of the ball, so Stoke still have hope. Cleverley then tripped by Adam.

  • That should be it now. Stoke haven't offered enough to suggest they are capable of getting two back. United will now look to shut up shop.

  • GOAL MAN UTD - EVRA. Amid all of the confusion, United get on with the game and double their lead. Young has Evra getting up alongside him and after entering the box he curls home with his right foot from 12 yards out.

  • Clattenburg in discussion with Hughes. Walters and Arnautovic also involved. Finally, Shawcross does make his way off. In a strange twists, Palacios is sent back on. Stoke changed their mind and Adam replaced Shawcross.

  • Shawcross hobbles from the field. No decision taken by Stoke as yet as to whether he will continue. Original change does take place, with Palacios making way for Adam.
