Wayne Rooney starts up front for Manchester United against Tottenham, on the same day that a shock video of him appearing to be knocked out by former team-mate Phil Bardsley emerged.

The story was on the front page of The Sun on Sunday today, but Bardsley's wife Tanya has since said that "it was just two mates having a laugh" and Rooney "jumped straight back up again" afterwards.

Manager Louis van Gaal has made three changes from his team who lost to Arsenal in the FA Cup on Monday - Juan Mata for the suspended Angel Di Maria, Phil Jones in for Marcos Rojo, and Michael Carrick for Luke Shaw.



Manchester United: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Blind, Carrick, Herrera, Mata, Fellaini, Young, Rooney (c).

Subs: Lindegaard, Rafael, Blackett, A Pereira, Januzaj, Falcao, Wilson.

Tottenham: Lloris (c), Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose; Bentaleb, Mason; Chadli, Eriksen, Townsend; Kane.

Subs: Vorm, Chiriches, Davies, Dembele, Lamela, Paulinho, Adebayor.
