Vidic back for united

Nemanja Vidic made his first start for three months as Manchester United looked to re-establish a six-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League at Swansea.

Vidic, recently back from a knee injury, came in for Rio Ferdinand in the centre of defence and lined up alongside Jonny Evans, himself returning from a hamstring problem.

Swansea had Michel Vorm back in goal after eight weeks out with a groin injury, while Kemy Agustien was handed his first Premier League start of the season as he was preferred to Ki Sung-yueng.

Swansea: Vorm, Tiendalli, Chico, Williams, Davies, Dyer, Britton, Agustien, de Guzman, Routledge, Michu. Subs: Tremmel, Graham, Monk, Shechter, Moore, Ki, Richards.

Man Utd: De Gea, Jones, Evans, Vidic, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Cleverley, Young, Rooney, van Persie. Subs: Lindegaard, Giggs, Hernandez, Welbeck, Scholes, Fletcher, Buttner.

Referee: Michael Oliver (Northumberland)
