The big striker and Andre Herrera are back after suspension, while Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw return to the bench but there is no place for Wayne Rooney

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns from suspension for Manchester United and will start in Tuesday's Premier League clash against Everton.

The Swedish front man was forced to sit out three games after being found guilty of violent conduct following an elbow on Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings in the FA Premier League encounter on March 4. But he returns one month on and takes his usual spot up front.

Ander Herrera also comes back into the starting XI after being banned for two games for his sending-off in the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea, while Daley Blind is brought in at left-back to allow Antonio Valencia to be rested with Ashley Young switching flanks.

On the bench there are returns for Paul Pogba, 19 days on from suffering a hamstring injury against FC Rostov, and Luke Shaw, whose commitment was questioned at the weekend by manager Jose Mourinho. The England left-back has played just twice in four months for United.

Notably, there is no Wayne Rooney in the matchday 18 against his former club.
