Manchester United could set themselves up to clinch the EPL title this weekend with a victory and some help from Wigan against Manchester City. Sir Alex Ferguson has shifted his formation and lineup slightly from the weekend win over Stoke, moving Phil Jones into the midfield alongside Michael Carrick as Rafael returns to the lineup. Antonio Valencia, Wayne Rooney and Shinji Kagawa start for the second straight match in the attack, supporting Robin Van Persie.
Sam Allardyce has made only one adjustment from West Ham's draw against Southampton last weekend. James Tomkins drops from the back line due to a calf injury with Winston Reid taking over in his place.
West Ham United starting lineup (4-1-4-1): Jussi Jaaskelainen; Guy Demel, James Collins, Winston Reid, Joey O'Brien; Gary O'Neil; Matt Jarvis, Kevin Nolan, Mohamed Diamé, Ricardo Vaz Te; Andy Carroll.
Manchester United starting lineup (4-2-3-1): David De Gea; Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Rafael; Michael Carrick, Phil Jones; Shinji Kagawa, Wayne Rooney, Antonio Valencia; Robin van Persie.
