TEAM NEWS: Hernandez, Rooney and Van Persie all start for Manchester United's tie against CFR Cluj

Sir Alex Ferguson has put forth a strong line-up ahead of the Red Devils' Champions League clash with the Romanian champions
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has chosen a strong side ahead of this evening's Champions League clash with CFR Cluj.

The attacking threesome of Robin van Persie, Hernandez and Wayne Rooney will be leading the Red Devils' offensive offering against their Romanian opponents.

Sir Alex Ferguson makes six changes from the side that were beaten by Tottenham on the weekend. David De Gea replaces Lindegaard in goal, with United's defence of Da Silva, Ferdinand, Evans and Evra remaining the same as last Saturday's line-up.

Manchester United's midfield is made up of Tom Cleverly, Anderson and Darren Fletcher, while Wayne Rooney sees himself placed just behind Van Persie and Javier Hernandez up front in a center-attack position.

Nani and Kagawa have both been left on the United bench, with Powell and Welbeck all missing the game's start in Transylvannia.

Romanian champions CFR Cluj have put forward any equally strong line-up, Kapetanos and Sougou will lead their attack while Ivo Pinto, Sepsi, Cadu and Rada will all defend Felguerias's goalline in defence.
