Montenegro vs. England, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Lineups

England have named five Manchester United players in their starting lineup as they take on Montenegro in Podgorica.

Chris Smalling partners Joleon Lescott in defence, while Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick comprise England's midfield two. Danny Welbeck is on the wing while Wayne Rooney leads the line up front. There is also space for Steven Gerrard and James Milner in a conservative-looking England lineup, although there may be concerns over the limited amount of gametime Lescott and Smalling have received this year, with the Montenegrin team identifying it as a potential weakness.

Montenegro are largely as expected, with a fairly tight-looking team behind Mirko Vucinic and Stevan Jovetic, their two star players, up front.

England starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Joe Hart; Glen Johnson, Chris Smalling, Joleon Lescott, Ashley Cole; Tom Cleverley, Michael Carrick; James Milner, Steven Gerrard, Danny Welbeck; Wayne Rooney.

Montenegro starting lineup (4-5-1): Mladen Bozovic; Marko Basa, Vladimir Volkov, Miodrag Dzudovic, Stefan Savic, Vladimir Bozovic, Simon Vukcevic, Mitar Novakovic, Elsad Zverotic, Stevan Jovetic, Mirko Vucinic.
