Manchester United vs. Sunderland, Live coverage: Januzaj returns to the bench, Hernandez starts

Laurence Griffiths

Ryan Giggs rotates his team as Manchester United face Sunderland, with Nani and Ashley Young coming into the team. Javier Hernandez also gets a rare start.

Ryan Giggs has rotated his side for his second match in charge of Manchester United, with Wayne Rooney missing out through injury and Robin van Persie only making the bench.

Javier Hernandez gets the nod to start up front, with Juan Mata in behind, while Ashley Young and Nani are given surprise starts on the wings.

Elsewhere the team remains the same, however - Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick are in midfield, and the back four remains the same as the game against Norwich, with Phil Jones continuing at right-back in lieu of the presumably-injured Rafael, and veteran due Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic at centre-back.

On the bench, Adnan Januzaj thankfully returns to the squad, as does Marouane Fellaini, while Danny Welbeck is also there.

Manchester United starting lineup: David De Gea, Phil Jones, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Nani, Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher, Ashley Young, Juan Mata, Javier Hernandez. Subs: Ben Amos, Chris Smalling, Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini, Adnan Januzaj, Danny Welbeck, Robin van Persie.
