Manchester United: Predicted XI v Everton

Manchester United manager David Moyes faces his former club Everton on Wednesday night - and the Scot will be desperate to secure all three points.

The Toffees are currently three places above the Red Devils in fifth, but United will leapfrog the Merseyside outfit with victory at Old Trafford.

Getting his team selection right, therefore, will be imperative for Moyes.

There are no prizes for correctly guessing who'll start in goal for the hosts. David de Gea could find himself behind a defence comprised of Rafael, Jonny Evans, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra.

In front of them, £27.5m summer signing Marouane Fellaini is likely to start against his former employers, as Phil Jones is suspended. Moyes must choose whether to partner the Belgium international alongside Tom Cleverley, Ryan Giggs or Anderson.

Antonio Valencia is likely to retain his place on the right, although Danny Welbeck could lose his left-wing spot to either Adnan Januzaj or Nani.

Shinji Kagawa is also an option. The Japan international will start in the 'No. 10' role, unless Robin van Persie is declared fit, in which case Wayne Rooney will drop back into the hole.
