Manchester United manager David Moyes has named Shinji Kagawa in his starting lineup for this evening's visit to Upton Park to face West Ham United.

Elsewhere, former Hammers midfielder Michael Carrick fills in at centre-back due to injuries and the suspension of Nemanja Vidic, while Alex Buttner starts at full-back.

Meanwhile, West Ham make two changes to their side from last time out, with Matthew Taylor and James Collins returning in place of Antonio Nocerino and Winston Reid.
