Manchester United vs. Norwich City: Lineups and live coverage

Manchester United have Wilfried Zaha, Javier Hernandez, Rafael and Adnan Januzaj in the lineup as they face Norwich City at Old Trafford.

Wilfried Zaha makes a rare start as Manchester United kick off their League Cup campaign against Norwich City at Old Trafford.

The youngster starts on the right, with Ashley Young on the left either side of a midfield consisting of Phil Jones and Tom Cleverley. Alexander Buttner and Anders Lindegaard also come in for the rested Patrice Evra and David de Gea respectively, although Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand both come into the side.

So, we now know that Moyes has decided to drop the Ferdinand-Vidic partnership. How effective a decision that is will tell in time, but although Vidic may mean we can't keep a high line, he is still our best defender.

More oddly, there's no place for Robin van Persie, Marouane Fellaini or Michael Carrick in the entire squad.

Manchester United starting lineup: Anders Lindegaard; Rafael, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Alexander Buttner, Wilfried Zaha, Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley, Ashley Young, Adnan Januzaj, Javier Hernandez.

Subs: Ben Amos, Anderson, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Chris Smalling, Fabio, Antonio Valencia

Norwich City starting lineup: Mark Bunn; Steven Whittaker, Ryan Bennett, Sebastian Bassong, Javier Garrido; Robert Snodgrass, Leroy Fer, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond; Wes Hoolahan; Johan Elmander
