MANCHESTER (Sporting Alert) — Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic start in the back for Manchester United in tonight’s Capital One Cup clash at Old Trafford with Norwich City, while Wilfried Zaha gets a start for Reds.
There is no Robin van Persie in the squad, but fellow strike partner Wayne Rooney is on the bench, as manager David Moyes makes nine changes to the Manchester United side that beat Stoke in the EPL on Saturday.
While Zaha makes his first appearance under Moyes since the Charity Shield, attacker Adnan Januzaj returns to the starting team to play behind lone Javier Hernandez, who leads the attack.
Ashley Young also comes back into the starting team, with Ryan Giggs, Anderson and Antonio Valencia on the bench.
David de Gea gets a well deserved rest so Anders Lindegaard gets the starting gloves.
Meanwhile, Norwich makes eight adjustments to the side that drew 0-0 with Cardiff on Saturday, with Johan Elmander starting up front and Nathan Redmond also starting.
