Jones was doubtful for the game because of a groin injury, but has shaken off the problem to start alongside Giggs in midfield, with Michael Carrick out injured and Marouane Fellaini out as he serves a one-game suspension.

Rio Ferdinand and Jonny Evans start at center-back, with Wayne Rooney leading the attack and Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck on the bench.

Stefan Kiessling is among the starters for Bayer Leverkusen, who will look to book a place in the last 16 with a win.
