[Teams] Man Utd vs Shakhtar Donetsk: Confirmed Line-Ups – No Van Persie

By on December 10, 2013

Manchester United entertain Shakhtar Donetsk at Old Trafford tonight looking to end a disappointing recent run in the Premier League.

The Red Devils have already secured their place in the knockout phase of the Champions League but will be hoping to get back to winning ways after successive home defeats.

Boss David Moyes has opted to rest striker Robin van Persie after he only returned on Saturday following a month out with a groin injury. Wayne Rooney returns up front having served a one-match ban at the weekend, while Shinji Kagawa is also back in the starting eleven after missing the Newcastle game through illness.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Man Utd

De Gea, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Buttner; Januzaj, Jones, Giggs, Young; Kagawa, Rooney.

Subs: Lindegaard, Anderson, Nani, Cleverley, Valencia, Hernandez, RvP.

Shakhtar Donetsk

Pyatov, Srna, Kucher, Rakitskiy, Shevchuk, Fred, Stepanenko, Douglas Costa, Teixeira, Bernard, Adriano.

Subs: Kanibolotskiy, Kryvtsov, Fernando, Hübschman, Bernard, Eduardo, Ferreyra
