The January arrival from Shanghai Shenhua goes straight into the squad for the Red Devils, while Eric Bailly is named in the starting XI as part of a three-man defence with Victor Lindelof unavailable through illness.

Bruno Fernandes will operate behind a front two of Anthony Martial and Daniel James with Mason Greenwood also named on the bench for the visitors.

As for Chelsea, England pair Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi both miss out through injury, meaning that Pedro and Michy Batshuayi are handed starts in the final third, while Willian also features having been named on the bench against Leicester City last time out.

Willy Caballero is again between the sticks, meanwhile, with Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has struggled for form this season, named on the bench for the second successive match.

There is also a spot in the middle of the home side's midfield for Croatia international Mateo Kovacic as Mason Mount drops out.
