David Moyes has picked Wilfried Zaha to start as he names his first Manchester United team for a competitive game as the Reds take on Wigan Athletic at Wembley in the Community Shield.

Danny Welbeck and Robin van Persie partner the former Crystal Palace man in a three-man attack, while Ryan Giggs and Tom Cleverley start alongside Michael Carrick in midfield.

Phil Jones, oddly, partners Nemanja Vidic in defence, while Rafael and Patrice Evra start at full-back as expected. Nani, Ashley Young and Wayne Rooney are all absent, and have not travelled with the rest of the squad for the game.

Manchester United starting lineup (4-3-3): David De Gea, Rafael, Nemanja Vidic, Phil Jones, Patrice Evra, Ryan Giggs, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Wilfried Zaha, Danny Welbeck, Robin Van Persie

Wigan Athletic starting lineup (4-3-3): Scott Carson; Emerson Boyce, James Perch, Leon Barnett, Stephen Crainey; James McCarthy, Ben Watson, James McArthur; Shaun Maloney, Grant Holt, James McClean
