Everton defenders beware, you’re going to get elbowed.

Manchester United have named Marouane Fellaini in midfield ahead of their FA Cup semi-final against the Toffees at Wembley.

Juan Mata and Morgan Schneiderlin start on the bench for the 5.15 pm kick-off while Matteo Darmian is also left on the bench with the prodigious Timothy Fosu-Mensah continued to be shown the faith of Louis van Gaal.

Meanwhile, under-pressure Roberto Martinez is without the injured Seamus Coleman as he looks to salvage his job following a substandard Premier League campaign.

It appears as though another Ireland international, Darron Gibson, will form part of a back four who will be up against the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney.

But Manchester United supporters couldn’t quite believe that their afroed Belgian was named in the starting XI.
