Manchester United can secure top spot in their Champions League group if they can avoid defeat tonight against Shakhtar Donetsk.

David Moyes has changed quite a few players for the game. Rio Ferdinand, Jonny Evans and Alexander Buttner all start at the back.


In midfield, Adnan Januzaj has been given his Champions League debut while Ashley Young will make his first start since the Manchester derby.

Robin van Persie is unsurprisingly rested so Shinji Kagawa will play behind Wayne Rooney up top.

Kick-off is 19:45GMT.
