thumbnail Hello,

Top scorer Robin van Persie on on the bench for the visitors as Chicharito and Danny Welbeck lead the line against Sam Allardyce's men at Upton Park

Shinji Kagawa starts for Manchester United while Joe Cole makes his first appearance for West Ham since joining from Liverpool as the two sides clash in the FA Cup third round at Upton Park.

As expected Sir Alex Ferguson has made several changes for the game against the Hammers with Chris Smalling, Nemanja Vidic, Alexander Buttner, Paul Scholes and Danny Welbeck all coming in.

The hosts, meanwhile, put Joe Cole straight into the side while Kevin Nolan and Alou Diarra also return and Ricardo Vaz Te and Carlton Cole continue up front.

West Ham starting XI
: Jaaskelainen; Demel, Collins, Tomkins, Potts; Diarra, Nolan, Collison, Joe Cole; Vaz Te, Carlton Cole
Subs: Spiegel, Reid, Jarvis, Taylor, Noble, Spence, E.Lee

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea; Smalling, Vidic, Evans, Buttner; Rafael, Scholes, Cleverley, Kagawa; Chicharito, Welbeck
