Manchester United provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Vidic, Fabio, Valencia, Nani, Jones, Fletcher, Cleverley, Giggs, Anderson, Young, Zaha, Januzaj, Rooney, Welbeck, Kagawa, Hernandez.

No call up for any U21 players. Good to see Smalling, Vidic, Kagawa and Hernandez appear to be fit again.
Based on this, I'd play:

Welbeck

Zaha Rooney Valencia

Cleverley Jones

Büttner Vidić Smalling Rafael

De Gea

Hernandez has to start, been our best player in the cup so far, and he needs games if we want him to stick around. Would probably be the perfect game to rest Rooney, or at least bench him and have him there to come on if needed. Would probably be a good game to give Fletcher a run out too
I think Chicharito will leave in January (for good money) in order to ensure his World Cup place and maintain his status as Mexico's star striker.

Fletcher will hopefully get 30 minutes in the second half. A full game against Stoke City away is tough on the legs. Adam and co are very physical.

Ando will bag a brace. He is The League Cup king and suits that most advanced of the midfield role. He scored against both Reading and Schalke 04 playing that role.

We need to not rely on crosses, as Stoke will head them away from for fun.

Welbeck, Ando and Cleverley are capable of quick link up play. Hopefully Valencia drives his crosses low and avoids the air where Stoke will dominate.
