Today at Old Trafford

17:15 Both teams are currently warming up on the pitch, to a soundtrack that includes tunes from Pulp, Happy Mondays and The Vaccines. Nice one.

16:55 So, Rooney starts on the bench, despite an impressive outing in midweek against Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup. But there's still plenty of firepower in the Reds' starting XI. Incidentally, Robin van Persie makes his 200th career Premier League appearance. (NC)

16:41 Here are today's teams...

United: Lindegaard; Rafael, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra; Nani, Carrick, Scholes, Giggs; Kagawa, van Persie.
Subs: De Gea, Wootton, Anderson, Cleverley, Hernandez, Rooney, Welbeck

Tottenham: Friedel; Walker, Gallas, Caulker, Vertonghen; Lennon, Sandro, Dempsey, Dembele, Bale; Defoe
Subs: Lloris, Huddlestone, Dawson, Sigurdsson, Falque, Townsend, Mason

16:25 Blimey. Liverpool might just win a league game under Brendan Rogers this mafternoon. They lead 5-1 at Carrow Road, but hey, there's still time for Norwich to score four... (AB)

16:19 We'll know who starts in goal and everywhere else for that matter within the next 20 minutes or so when the team news is announced first on MUTV. In the meantime, here's my predicted eleven: Lindegaard; Rafael, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra; Scholes, Carrick, Kagawa; Welbeck, Rooney, van Persie. I'll probably be miles out, as usual. (AB)

16:03 I’ve taken my place in the Old Trafford press box, just in time to witness Anders Lindegaard walk on to the pitch to inspect both the goal mouth and centre circle. Does that mean he starts today? (MF)
