Fulham vs. Manchester United: Lineups and live coverage

Boris Streubel

Phil Jones and Tom Cleverley continue in midfield as Manchester United travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham.

Tom Cleverley and Phil Jones continue in midfield from Manchester United's midweek win over Norwich City.

The two played well to control the game in a manner we seldom see in these times, so it's not a huge surprise to see them back again. What is a shock is that the official United Twitter account orders the lineup in a way that suggests we'll be playing a diamond, with Antonio Valencia in central midfield and Adnan Januzaj as a number 10.

That seems unlikely, with a 4-4-2ish shape with Januzaj and Valencia on the wings seeming the more obvious choice. We'll soon find out. And also, we might want to start getting worried about Marouane Fellaini not getting picked. But anyway, FUlham were beyond woeful in their last game against Southampton, so let's hope for more of the same from them.

Manchester United starting lineup: David De Gea; Rafael, Nemanja Vidic, Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra; Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley, Adnan Janzuaj; Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie. Subs: Anders Lindegaard, Chris Smalling, Marouane Fellaini, Shinji Kagawa, Nani, Ashley Young, Javier Hernandez.

Fulham starting lineup: Maarten Stekelenburg; Sacha Riether, Philippe Senderos, Fernando Amorebieta, Kieran Richardson; Ashkan Dejagah, Steve Sidwell, Scott Parker, Patjim Kasami; Bryan Ruiz; Dimitar Berbatov.
