Manchester United vs. Bayern Munich, Live coverage: Giggs and Welbeck both start

New, comments

Ryan Giggs and Danny Welbeck are both in the lineup to face Bayern.

David Moyes is playing Ryan Giggs and Danny Welbeck for tonight's thrashing/game against Bayern Munich. It's possible that United are going with an unusual 4-3-3, with Giggs partnering Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick in midfield, though Moyes could be sticking with his tried and tested 4-2-3-1 and pushing Giggs out left.

Elsewhere, Alexander Büttner starts at left-back with Patrice Evra suspended. No big deal, he's only going up against Arjen Robben. Gulp. Pre-match doubt Rafael is out of the squad, meaning we'll unfortunately have to watch Phil Jones try to contain Franck Ribéry at right back, with Adnan Januzaj on the bench.

But hey, it's sunny in Manchester, so maybe that's a good sign? No? ...

Manchester United confirmed starting lineup: David De Gea; Alexander Büttner, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Phil Jones; Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick; Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, Antonio Valencia; Danny Welbeck
