David Moyes has rotated his Manchester United squad as they face Olympiakos in Greece for the first leg of their Champions League clash.

Tom Cleverley gets a start in midfield alongside Michael Carrick, while Antonio Valencia starts on the right wing in place of the cup-tied Juan Mata.

Meanwhile, Adnan Januzaj is also out of the side, not even getting a place on the bench, with Ashley Young taking his place in the side. Rafael is still out, with Chris Smalling continuing at right-back. Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand both start despite having played at the weekend.

That's... not a great side. Rooney and Van Persie, who both start up front, are about the only comforts there. Could be worrying...


Manchester United starting lineup: David de Gea; Chris Smalling. Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra; Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Ashley Young; Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie. Subs:
Anders Lindegaard, Alexander Büttner, Marouane Fellaini, Ryan Giggs, Shinji Kagawa, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck.
