CONFIRMED: Manchester United v Sunderland line-ups - Januzaj and Welbeck lead United attack!

Here are the sides Manchester United and Sunderland have selected for the League Cup semi-final second leg at Old Trafford.

Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Buttner, Carrick, Fletcher, Januzaj, Welbeck, Kagawa, Hernandez

Subs: Lindegaard, Evra, Jones, Giggs, Young, Cleverley, Valencia

Sunderland: Mannone, Bardsley, Alonso, Brown, O'Shea, Cattermole, Colback, Ki, Johnson, Borini, Fletcher

Subs: Larsson, Gardner, Celustka, Altidore, Giaccherini, Vergini, Ustari

Manchester United head into this game looking to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first leg.

David Moyes’ men have lost four out of their last five in all competitions and this is a chance for them to set the record straight following a bad defeat and Premier League rivals Chelsea last Sunday.

The big news leading up to this game has centred around the return of Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie to first team training with United.

Sunderland will take a great deal of confidence from the fact that several teams have taken results away from Old Trafford this season.

They are 90 minutes away from playing Manchester City at Wembley, they will be well backed and manager Gus Poyet will stress the importance of a careful start as United are likely to attack from the outset.
