After the fun of the cup competitions, it's back to business, and Jose Mourinho has picked a close-to-full-strength Manchester United side for tonight's game against Hull City.

David de Gea returns in goal, and Antonio Valencia and Daley Blind take up the full-back spots. There's no place in the squad for Eric Bailly after his knock for the reserves in midweek, so Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo take central defensive duties.

In midfield, it's the usual trio of Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba. Despite his exciting performance against Wigan in the FA Cup, Anthony Martial doesn't keep his place; instead, Marcus Rashford gets the nod on the left. Henrikh Mkhitaryan starts on the opposing flank.

Zlatan Ibrahmovic starts up front, because of course he does.

On the bench, helping Sergio Aguero with his killer sudoku, we have Chris Smalling, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, the aforementioned Martial, and club captain Wayne Rooney.

We don't have any central midfielders.
