​SUPERCLASICO: Premier League stars Jesus, Coutinho and Willian will start for Brazil against Argentina

A host of Premier League stars will be included in Brazil's starting XI when they take on Argentina in the 'Superclasico' on Friday night.

Over 95,000 people are expected to be in attendance at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to watch one of the oldest rivalries in world football.

And to the fans delight, Manchester City duo Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho, Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho and Chelsea's Willian are all expected to be named in the Selecao starting lineup.

Former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho, who now plays for Guangzhou Evergrande in China, is also expected to start.

Chelsea defender David Luiz will be on the bench for the beginning of the game.
