Swansea vs Manchester United: Team line-ups – Herrera starts, Van Persie returns

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United: De Gea, McNair, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Blind, Fellaini, Herrera, Di Maria, Rooney, van Persie

Subs: Valdes, Smalling, Januzaj, Mata, Valencia, Young, Falcao

Swansea City: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Williams (C), Taylor, Cork, Shelvey, Ki, Sigurdsson, Routledge, Gomis

Subs: Tremmel, Rangel, Amat, Britton, Montero, Emnes, Oliveira

Ander Herrera makes his first start in the Premier League since December and Robin van Persie comes straight back into the starting XI for Radamel Falcao who has been named on the bench.

In defence, Paddy McNair and Phil Jones have been chosen ahead of Antonio Valencia and Chris Smalling but Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo keep their places.

Up front, Wayne Rooney looks to be starting alongside van Persie with Marouane Fellaini in his favoured no.10 position but until the team kicks off, there are no guarantees Rooney won’t be starting in midfield with Fellaini in an attacking role.
