Man Utd v West Ham preview

Wayne Rooney is set to return to the Manchester United starting line-up for Wednesday's FA Cup third-round replay against West Ham at Old Trafford (8.05pm).

Rooney has recovered from the knee injury he suffered in training on Christmas Day and is likely to be among a number of changes for the Red Devils.

Nani is fit again after spending two months out with a hamstring problem but Ashley Young (knee) and Johnny Evans (hamstring) both miss out. Nemanja Vidic (also knee) is expected to be fit, but may not be risked.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has only three fit defenders to choose from, so may opt to change his system as Joey O'Brien (hamstring) and George McCartney (knee) are definitely out, but midfielder Mohamed Diame is available again.

Striker Marouane Chamakh is ineligible for the cup competition due to the terms of his loan from Arsenal, while Allardyce is still deciding how best to integrate new signing Wellington Paulista, with Andy Carroll (knee) and Modibo Maiga (African Nations Cup) also absent.
