Manchester United starting line-up: David De Gea, Rafael, Nemanja Vidic, Phil Jones, Patrice Evra, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Nani, Wayne Rooney, Adnan Januzaj, Robin van Persie. Subs: Anders Lindegaard, Chris Smalling, Ryan Giggs, Antonio Valencia, Shinji Kagawa, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez.

Sunderland starting line-up: Kieran Westwood, Ondrej Celustka, Jack Colback, John O'Shea, Valentin Roberge, Lee Cattermole, Ki Seung-Yeung, Craig Gardner, Adam Johnson, Emmanuel Giaccherini, Jozy Altidore.

Adnan Januzaj makes a surprise start at the Stadium of Light for Manchester United, with Wayne Rooney also fit to start, but Marouane Fellaini is surprisingly not even on the bench for United.

There's no injury news for Fellaini so far, but that may change as information comes through. Phil Jones is preferred to Jonny Evans as a replacement for Rio Ferdinand, while Tom Cleverley partners Michael Carrick in midfield. Nani gets the third attacking midfield spot, with Valencia and Kagawa both on the bench.
