Ryan Giggs will shake up the Manchester United starting XI when he names his team to face Norwich City, according to the Mirror.

They claim that Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic will all feature in defence, although don't seem to be sure who the right-back will be, with Rafael injured.

Wayne Rooney will start up front, with Juan Mata in the hole and Danny Welbeck and Adnan Januzaj on the flanks. Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick will complete the team by comprising the alleged midfield.

So, that makes:

David de Gea; ?????, Nemanja Vidic, RIo Ferdinand, Patrice Evra; Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher; Danny Welbeck, Juan Mata, Adnan Januzaj; Wayne Rooney.

Pretty good. Arguably our best lineup, although Shinji Kagawa is probably the most notable absence given his recent improved form, while Jonny Evans is also not starting despite being fit and probably our best centre-back at the moment. But let's see if this proves to be correct. One thing's for sure, the mood will be a lot better around the place. Nobody sneaking off to leak teams to the press anymore, no sir. Those days are long gone.
