(Sporting Alert) — Radamel Falcao only starts on the bench for Manchester United in tonight’s English Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion.

Falcao, who scored the winning goal against Everton the last time out, makes way for Adnan Januzaj, who plays alongside Robin van Persie and Juan Mata in the attack.

Phil Jones returns to start in the backline, while and Ander Herrera makes a surprising quick return to play in the midfield with Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind.

Michael Carrick, Ashley Young, Darren Fletcher and Marouane Fellaini are all on the bench.

Former Man United goalkeeper Ben Foster has a calf injury and misses out for the home side, but exciting forward Saido Berahino leads the attack and Chris Brunt shake off a knock to start as well.

Manchester United is still without captain Wayne Rooney, who is suspended so Van Persie captains the team tonight, as the Red Devils look to return to the top four.

West Bromwich: Myhill, Wisdom, Lescott, Dawson, Pocognoli, Gardner, Brunt, Morrison, Dorrans, Sessegnon, Berahino. Subs: Daniels, Gamboa, McAuley, Mulumbu, Blanco, Ideye, Anichebe.

Man United: De Gea, Rafael, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Blind, Herrera, Januzaj, Mata, Di Maria, van Persie. Subs: Lindegaard, Smalling, Carrick, Fellaini, Fletcher, Young, Falcao.
