by Sam Peoples

Manchester United Starting XI vs Bournemouth: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Shaw; Carrick, Pogba, Mata, Rooney, Martial; Ibrahimovic

Subs: Romero, Blind, Smalling, Fellaini, Herrera, Lingard, Rashford

Luke Shaw makes his first start for Manchester United since November in a much changed team from Jose Mourinho. Eric Bailly isn’t in the squad at all so Marcos Rojo starts at centre-back alongside the returning Phil Jones.

Ander Herrera has also been given a rest meaning Michael Carrick will play deeper with Paul Pogba and Juan Mata in front of him in a midfield three.

Wayne Rooney also returns to the starting XI as Henrikh Mkhitaryan is still not fit to play.

The game kicks off today at 12.30GMT and is live on Sky Sports 1. Join us for our post-match coverage on The Peoples Person and live match reaction over on United Peoples TV.
