There's good news and bad news in the Manchester United lineup versus Bayer Leverkusen tonight. Firstly, the good news - Phil Jones returns to midfield, Tom Cleverley isn't playing, neither is Ashley Young, and Nani also gets a chance to start.
Now, the news that may be good or bad depending on your point of view: Jones starts despite a difficult weekend game when we're really going to need him. Giggs starts. Shinji Kagawa, interestingly, gets to operate in the hole. I've long been skeptical of the view that this will instantly turn him into Lionel Messi, but I'm very intrigued to see the results of this experiment.
Subs: Anders Lindegaard, Anderson, Alexander Buttner, Ashley Young, Tom Cleverley, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck.
Bayer Leverkusen starting lineup: Leno; Can, Spahic, Donati, Toprak; Reinartz; Rolfes, Bender; Son, Castro; Kießling.
