Two debut for United as Hernandez starts up front

New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal handed debuts to Jesse Lingard and Tyler Blackett as he looked to start his reign with a win over Swansea.

Wayne Rooney captained the team for the first time while Javier Hernandez started up front in the place of Robin van Persie, who is still lacking fitness following his late return from the World Cup.

Subs: Januzaj, Nani, Kagawa, Fellaini, Michael Keane, Amos, James.

Subs: Gomis, Tiendalli, Montero, Tremmel, Bartley, Richards, Sheehan.

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)
