Manchester United Vs. Everton, Premier League 2012: Lineups

Manchester United have won their last 7 home games in a row, and will look to make that 8 today against an Everton side who have little to play for besides pride after crashing out of the FA Cup at the semifinal stage earlier this month.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has selected a very strong side today, with the only change from the last outing against Aston Villa being Luis Nani replacing the under fire winger, Ashley Young. Danny Welbeck, rumored to have recently signed a new contract at the club starts alongside Wayne Rooney in attack.

Anderson, Nemanja Vidic and Darren Fletcher remain among the big names out of contention for Red Devils.

Everton will be looking to finish the season strongly though, and manager David Moyes has put out a strong, if defensive looking side which moves John Heitinga or Phil Jagielka into a midfield five as they look to stifle the home side at every opportunity. On the bench there's room for hot young prospect Ross Barkley after a lengthy injury spell.

The Merseysiders are without Leighton Baines and Jack Rodwell through injury.

Manchester United Team (4-4-2): David De Gea; Rafael, Jonny Evans, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra; Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Paul Scholes, Luis Nani; Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck.

Substitutes: Ben Amos, Phil Jones, Ryan Giggs, Chris Smalling, Ji-Sung Park, Javier Hernandez, Ashley Young.

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

Substitutes: Jan Mucha, Denis Stracqualursi, James McFadden, Tim Cahill, Magaye Gueye, Ross Barkley, Victor Anichebe.
