Everton Vs Manchester United: Lineups Announced, Van Persie On Bench

The lineups are in for today's only Premier League game, which sees Manchester United travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton.

The home side has a familiar look about it with Steven Pienaar the only new face in the side, although he did spend an extended spell at the club last season on loan. Steven Naismith makes the bench, while Kevin Mirallas is not involved having only just arrived at the club.

Everton Starting XI (4-5-1): Tim Howard; Tony Hibbert, Phil Jagielka, Sylvain Distin, Leighton Baines; Leon Osman, Darron Gibson, Phil Neville, Marouane Fellaini, Steven Pienaar; Nikica Jelavic.

Everton Substitutes: Jan Mucha, John Heitinga, Steven Naismith, Magaye Gueye, Ross Barkley, Seamus Coleman, Victor Anichebe

Manchester United are looking to immediately follow up on cross-town rivals Manchester City's win yesterday and in turn keep the pressure on from the off and lineup with a very interesting side.

Rio Ferdinand misses out through injury meaning there's a makeshift central defenders job for Michael Carrick, while Antonio Valencia is preferred at right back to Rafael Da Silva. Robin Van Persie starts the game on the bench, but there's a full debut for Shinji Kagawa in midfield.

Manchester United Starting XI (4-4-2): David De Gea; Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra; Luis Nani, Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa, Paul Scholes; Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck

Manchester United Substitutes: Anders Lindergaard, Rafael Da Silva, Anderson, Dimitar Berbatov, Ashley Young, Robin Van Persie, Scott Wootton
