Moyes to assess internationals ahead of Southampton test

Manchester United manager David Moyes will assess the fitness of his international stars before settling on his line-up for Saturday’s Old Trafford encounter with Southampton.

Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney look certain to start in attack after both scored during the international break but Tom Cleverley is likely to miss out after picking up a calf injury prior to England’s victory over Montenegro.

Moyes’ major decision appears to revolve around 18-year-old Adnan Januzaj, who netted a match-winning brace on his full Premier League debut at Sunderland a fortnight ago.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Rafael, Smalling, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Fabio, Valencia, Nani, Fellaini, Carrick, Giggs, Anderson, Young, Zaha, Januzaj, Kagawa, Rooney, Van Persie, Welbeck, Hernandez.
