De Gea – Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Shaw – Blind – Rooney, Di Maria – Januzaj – van Persie, Falcao
Valdes, McNair, Smalling, Mata, Fellaini, Herrera, Wilson
Luke Shaw returns to the starting line-up after missing the 2-0 win against QPR and playing just a few minutes against Cambridge last weekend. Shaw’s return allows Daley Blind to return to his favoured midfield position.
Antonio Valencia is once again preferred to Rafael despite a return to a back four. Valencia is quickly becoming a favoured choice of Louis van Gaal‘s and it appears the Brazilian’s days at Old Trafford are numbered.
Robin van Persie makes his first start since coming off injured in the 1-0 defeat to Southampton and will combine once again with Radamel Falcao.
Kick-off is at 3pm.
