Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Manchester United: Lineups

Alex Livesey

Manchester United name a strong side as they travel to Ukraine to take on Shakhtar Donetsk.

Manchester United starting line-up: David de Gea; Rafael, Chris Smalling, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra; Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Marouane Fellaini, Danny Welbeck; Robin van Persie. Subs: Anders Lindegaard, Phil Jones, Ryan Giggs, Nani, Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa, Javier Hernandez.

Shakhtar Donetsk starting line-up: Andriy Pyatov; Darijo Srna, Oleksandr Kucher, Yaroslav Rakitsky, Andriy Shevchuk; Tomas Hubschmann, Fernando, Taison, Alex Teixeira, Douglas Costa; Luiz Adriano.

Manchester United have named a strong side as they take on Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine tonight.

Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic return to the starting line-up, as does Antonio Valencia. There is also a start for Tom Cleverley in a true midfield three with Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini, while Danny Welbeck starts on the left.

Oddly, there's no place for Wayne Rooney, even on the bench. It'll be interesting to see what role Marouane Fellaini plays in this line-up - he could be pushed furthest forwards out of that midfield trio. One again, however, there's no place for Shinji Kagawa
