Nemanja Vidic returns to the Manchester United starting line-up for their clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The departing club captain sat out the victory against West Brom last weekend, but is given a start by manager David Moyes with Chris Smalling making way as United look to reduce the 11-point deficit to Liverpool.

Liverpool have not named any surprises in their team, and are looking to overtake Manchester City in second spot and close the gap to league-leaders Chelsea to four points.

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea; Rafael, Jones, Vidic, Evra, Mata, Fellaini, Carrick, Januzaj, Rooney, Van Persie.

Substitutes: Lindegaard, Ferdinand, Cleverley, Kagawa, Valencia, Young, Welbeck.

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Flanagan, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Suarez, Sturridge.

Substitutes: Jones, Sakho, Cissokho, Lucas, Coutinho, Moses, Aspas
