Birmingham v MANCHESTER UNITED: Wes Brown and Jonny Evans get the nod despite Leeds defeat

08 January 2010 06:02
Jonny Evans will partner Wes Brown in central defence as Manchester United look to get their season back on track by beating Birmingham at St Andrew's.  

With Nemanja Vidic (leg) joining Rio Ferdinand (back) on the sidelines, Sir Alex Ferguson will turn to the duo even though they were at the heart of a defence breached by Leeds last Sunday.  

Case for the defence: Brown (right) and Evans (left) should take their places

Paul Scholes (hip) is fit, while new arrival Mame Biram Diouf has gained clearance to play and, having been allocated Carlos Tevez's old shirt number (32), could be involved.  

Team (from): Kuszczak, Foster, Neville, Rafael, De Laet, Brown, Evra, Fabio, Valencia, Park, Carrick, Fletcher, Scholes, Anderson, Gibson, Giggs, Obertan, Rooney, Berbatov, Owen, Welbeck, Diouf, Tosic.
