Nemanja Vidic returns to the Manchester United starting XI against Fulham after completing his recent suspension, while David Moyes has kept his faith in attacking trio Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Juan Mata.

Vidic announced this season will be his last at Old Trafford following heavy speculation on his future.

Ashley Young completes a largely attacking line-up for the home side, while Adnan Januzaj and Rio Ferdinand have to settle for places on the bench.

There's still no place for Fulham record signing Kostas Mitroglou as Rene Meulensteen makes nine changes to his starting side. Johnny Heitinga, who signed on deadline day, makes his first start.

Subs: Lindegaard, Ferdinand, Giggs, Valencia, Kagawa, Januzaj, Hernandez

Fulham: Stekelenburg, Riether, Burn, Heitinga, Riise, Tunnicliffe, Sidwell, Kvist, Richardson, Holtby, Tankovic
