In today’s early kick off, United look to extend their lead at the top to 9 points if only for a few hours.
Sir Alex has reshuffled the pack as Vidic and Smalling miss out mean Ferdinand partners Evans in defence whilst Evra is replaced by Fabio. Gibson and Anderson start in the middle of the park with Nani and Valencia on the wings whilst Rooney and Hernandez continue up top.
Starting XI: VDS, OShea, Ferdinand, Evans, Fabio, Valencia, Gibson, Anderson, Nani, Rooney, Hernandez
Subs: Kuszczak, Evra, Brown, Rafael, Carrick, Giggs, Owen
