Wes Brown will definitely miss tomorrow's lunchtime clash at Arsenal with an ankle injury but Gary Neville is back after being rested in midweek when young Rafael was preferred against Celtic.
The United captain is definitely set to start so predicting the defence is easy: Van der Sar; Neville, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra.
In midfield, Scholes and Hargreaves will certainly miss the game of course, with the latter visiting a specialist while the former doing some light jogging now with the prospect of being back for the Club World Championship.
Darren Fletcher, meanwhile, is struggling with a minor (hopefully...) knee injury he picked up at Parkhead and may not make tomorrow's game. In that case predicting the midfield would be also relatively straightforward, considering that Giggs is unlikely to start after completing 90 minutes at Celtic.
So it would go like this: Nani/Park, Carrick, Anderson, Ronaldo. If Fletcher does not make it then I expect Fergie to go with Park in order to give us a little bit more running and energy in midfield as the Carrick-Anderson duo looks a tad soft defensively.
Up front is straightforward: barring last minute injuries United will go with the blossoming partnership of Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov. I assume it will be a 4-4-2 as Fergie dared do deploy that formation at Stamford Bridge and it worked out quite well. And if Fletcher does not make it he'll have little choice: we won't have the necessary players for a 4-3-3.
The key is the defence of course which will be in the best possible shape. If the back four manage to produce a flawless performance - seomthing they haven't done yet this season -, then we'll win.
