Cuadrado starts, no Courtois for Blues; City start with Milner

The team news for tonight’s Premier League games.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal makes two changes to his first XI for the Barclays Premier League clash with Burnley at Old Trafford.

The adjustments from Sunday’s 1-1 draw at West Ham see Luke Shaw – suspended after being sent off in that match – and Antonio Valencia being replaced by Jonny Evans and Paddy McNair.

Clarets manager Sean Dyche is forced to change his starting line-up for the first time in 11 league games due to the season-ending injury suffered by Dean Marney, who is replaced by Michael Kightly in the sole alteration from Sunday’s 2-2 draw with West Brom.

Man Utd: De Gea, McNair, Jones, Evans, Rojo, Blind, Rooney, Januzaj, Di Maria, van Persie, Falcao.

Subs: Mata, Smalling, Ander Herrera, Valencia, Fellaini, Valdes, Wilson.

Kevin Nolan and Mark Noble misses West Ham’s trip to Southampton, although Andy Carroll is amongst the substitutes at St Mary’s.

Morgan Amalfitano and Carlton Cole come in for the pair, out with a bruised foot and virus respectively, while Carroll is able to return to the squad after an ankle injury and James Tomkins starts despite breaking his nose on Sunday.

A lengthy list of absentees means Southampton could only name six substitutes, with Florin Gardos and Harrison Reed the only changes to Saturday’s last-gasp win at QPR. Morgan Schneiderlin, a doubt heading into this match, is not in the squad.

Southampton: Forster, Clyne, Fonte, Gardos, Yoshida, Reed, Wanyama, Steven Davis, Mane, Pelle, Elia.

Subs: Kelvin Davis, Tadic, Djuricic, Ward-Prowse, McCarthy, Flannigan.

West Ham: Adrian, Jenkinson, Kouyate, Tomkins, Cresswell, Song, Amalfitano, Downing, Valencia, Sakho, Cole.

Subs: Jarvis, Carroll, O’Brien, Jaaskelainen, Burke, Oxford, Lee.

Referee: Craig Pawson (South Yorkshire)

Peter Crouch, who grabbed Stoke’s late leveller against Newcastle, starts for the injury-hit Potters while Geoff Cameron and Marko Arnautovic also feature.
