New signing Robin van Persie will start on the bench for Manchester United, though Shinji Kagawa is in the first XI as Sir Alex Ferguson's side take on Everton at Goodison Park.

Michael Carrick begins the game as a makeshift centre-back alongside the recently recovered Nemanja Vidic as an early-season injury crisis disrupts the Red Devils' ideal back line.

Everton starting XI:
Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Osman, Neville, Gibson, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jelavic

Manchester United starting XI:
De Gea, Valencia, Carrick, Vidic, Evra, Cleverley, Scholes, Kagawa, Nani, Welbeck, Rooney
