Arsenal vs. Manchester United: Lineups and live coverage, Fellaini returns

Manchester United take on Arsenal at the Emirates tonight, with Marouane Fellaini making a return to the bench, but Antonio Valencia making a return to the starting lineup.

Manchester United face Arsenal at the Emirates, and David Moyes has named a bit of a mixed bag of a side to get the job done tonight.

Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley, our worst central midfield pairing, start, while Chris Smalling and Nemanja Vidic are in defence. There's no Adnan Januzaj, who is on the bench.

The good news is that Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie all start, and that Marouane Fellaini returns to the bench, which is excellent news. Mata also appears to be starting in his favoured left wing role.

Manchester United starting lineup: David de Gea, Rafael, Chris Smalling, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra; Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Juan Mata; Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie.

Subs: Anders LIndegaard, Javier Hernandez, Marouane Fellaini, Adnan Januzaj, Rio Ferdinand, Alexander Buttner, Ashley Young.

Arsenal starting lineup: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Rosicky, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud.
