Merry Christmas, Manchester United fans. United are in action at Hull, so let's have a look at what David Moyes has brought us.

Well, the lumps of coal in our stocking are the fact that Ashley Young starts, with Adnan Januzaj on the bench and Phil Jones absent with an injury which will keep him out for two weeks. We have a few pairs of brown socks in the knowledge that Antonio Valencia continues at the right-wing while Michael Carrick and Shinji Kagawa are on the bench. But nonetheless, a couple of tasty satsumas in Rafael and Danny Welbeck continuing in the side, the latter as a striker again.

Not a great haul, but we still should be winning this one. Who behaved so badly in the year as to land us with Young starting though? Own up...

Manchester United starting lineup: David de Gea, Rafael, Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, Patrice Evra; Antonio Valencia, Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley, Ashley Young; Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck.

Subs: Anders Lindegaard, Nemanja Vidic, Fabio, Michael Carrick, Shinji Kagawa, Adnan Januzaj, Javier Hernandez.

Hull starting lineup: McGregor; Bruce, Chester, Davies, Elmohamady, Figueroa; Meyler, Huddlestone, Livermore; Graham, Sagbo.
