Rio Ferdinand and Jonny Evans lead the back line, while Nani and Antonio Valencia are the winger.

Phil Jones partners Michael Carrick in midfield.

Meanwhile, Arsène Wenger has made two changes to his Arsenal side for the clash with Lukas Podolski replacing the suspended Olivier Giroud and Kieran Gibbs comes in for Nacho Monreal at left back.

Thomas Vermaelen, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere are amongst the substitutes for Arsenal, with Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker again leading the heart of the defence.
