Sir Alex Ferguson picks Wanye Rooney, Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Shinji Kagawa from the start for Manchester United's clash with Newcastle United.

Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney start their first Premier League match together, with Shinji Kagawa and Danny Welbeck also picked in the starting 11.

David de Gea is in ahead of Anders Lindegaard, while Jonny Evans has shrugged off a dead leg to partner Rio Ferdinand in central defence.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is able to call upon Davide Santon, Jonas Gutierrez, Hatem Ben Arfa and striker Demba Ba after the quarter were rested in midweek.

Ba partners Papiss Cisse in a match full of quality players in attacking positions.

Newcastle: Harper, Santon, Perch, Williamson, Ferguson, Ben Arfa, Tiote, Cabaye, Gutierrez, Cisse, Ba. Subs: Alnwick, Simpson, Anita, Bigirimana, Obertan, Shola Ameobi, Sammy Ameobi.
