With Ferdinand, Vidic, Rafael, O’Shea, Anderson & Fletcher all missing through injury and Scholes banned we face a tough task as Owen Coyle’s Bolton will be looking to get something from this local derby.
United have been in imperious form at Old Trafford so despite the players missing we can take solace from this.
Evans has stepped back into the team to partner Smalling in defence whilst Brown moves to right back whilst Valencia gets his first start since his injury on the right.
Berbatov is again on the bench whilst Oliver Gill, son of David, benefits from the injuries and is too included on the bench along with the returning Park Ji Sung. Despite the rumours there is no place for Owen Hargreaves.
Starting XI: VDS; Brown, Smalling, Evans, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Giggs, Nani; Rooney, Hernandez
Subs: Kuszczak, Owen, Berbatov, Park, Fabio, Gibson, Gill.
