Everton vs. Manchester United, Lineups and live thread: Nani gets surprise start

Michael Regan

Manchester United's lineup to face Everton contains a few surprises as Nani, Alexander Buttner and Darren Fletcher all start.

Manchester United's hopes of finishing fourth are next to zero with Arsenal looking like they won't Devon Loch it, but nonetheless we should still want to win here. But there's a few surprises in the lineup as David Moyes names his team to face his old club.

Rafael is still injured, so Phil Jones is at right-back, while Alexander Buttner starts with Patrice Evra not in the squad. Nani also gets a surprise start on the right, in a trio with Juan Mata and Shinji Kagawa, with Adnan Januzaj on the bench. Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick are in midfield, and Wayne Rooney does indeed start.

Danny Welbeck, meanwhile, is on the bench, along with the returning Marouane Fellaini. Hmm. We can also expect Moyes to get booed for absolutely no reason by the home fans. Won't that be nice?

Manchester United starting lineup: De Gea, Jones, Evans, SMalling, Buttner, Fletcher, Carrick, Mata, Nani, Kagawa, Rooney. Subs: Lindegaard, Giggs, Hernandez, Welbeck, Valencia, Fellaini, Januzaj.
