Manchester United vs. West Ham United, FA Cup Replay: Lineups

Thanks to Robin Van Persie's late goal we're left with this FA Cup replay featuring Manchester United and West Ham. A change of venue was in order so after squandering home field advantage, the Irons must now try to knock out United at Old Trafford.

Alex Ferguson has made some adjustments but has none the less fielded a strong lineup. Wayne Rooney is back and will start in his usual place sitting behind the striker, with that role being played by Chicharito tonight. The immortal Ryan Giggs gets a start in front of a younger back line.

Sam Allardyce has make some changes from the previous meeting as well. His side gets a huge boost from the return of Mohamed Diamé, easily their most dynamic player. Gary O'Neil replaces Jack Collison and Matt Taylor takes over for captain Kevin Nolan in the midfield.

West Ham United starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Jussi Jaaskelainen; Jordan Spence, Winston Reid, James Tomkins, Danny Potts; Alou Diarra, Gary O'Neil; Mohamed Diamé, Matthew Taylor, Ricardo Vaz Tê; Carlton Cole.

Manchester United starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Anders Lindegaard; Rafael, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Alexander Büttner, Anderson, Ryan Giggs; Nani, Wanye Rooney, Antonio Valencia; Javier Hernández.
