Costs Of This Victory Could Be Too High For United

I know that many clubs' fans would kill to be in a major final, I know that. I know many will think it's churlish to complain about injuries after reaching the final of the Carling Cup with a very good display. But I will complain anyway.

I'd love to win the Carling Cup: if we've got this far, don't blow it. But the cost of tonight's victory could be too high for United. Rafael, Evans, Nani and Anderson all have to be assessed after picking up injuries and this could come back to haunt us.

With Hargreaves, Evra, Ferdinand and Brown out, another injuries would mean United are down to the bare bones. Fergie seemed a little worried...

"Anderson is going to have to go for an X-ray, there is some damage but we don`t know what yet," he told Sky Sports. "We will see what happens after the X-ray.

"We have had quite a few injuries tonight and it has been quite a bad night in that way.

"Jonny Evans has got a recurrence of his ankle injury. He has been holding it for a few weeks now, hopefully he will be okay in a week`s time.

"Rafael has a hamstring injury and he will be be out for a few weeks."


So we have only Gary Neville left for the right-back spot... Unless Ferdinand recovers, we might be forced to start with Fletcher at right-back or Chester in the centre of the back four against Spurs. I can't wait to get Rio, Rooney and Evra back.
