Rio And O'Shea Will Shake Off European Cup Curse

Rio And O'Shea Will Shake Off European Cup Curse

A Champions League game is around the corner and United, of course, have problems in defence. It's some kind of nasty plague that we never have a fully fit defence ahead of a Champions League tie.

Rio Ferdinand and John O'Shea are both rated doubtful for the game with an ankle and a hamstring problem respectively. However, I expect both to be fit for the game.

Simply because A) neither injury is that serious, B) there were these doubts over Evans and O'Shea ahead of the first leg but both recovered in time.

Rio has already signalled his intention to take part in the game: he revealed that he felt himself fit enough to start and I bet that Fergie won't restrain himself from fielding his most expensive defender - this game, unusually, is more important than Saturday's League clash with Liverpool.

hopefully positive news on these two situations but what I would like to know is that should anderson start?The guy was just fantastic against fulham and showed no signs of rustiness but I have a feeling it will be between giggs,carrick and fletcher for the central midfield positions assuming we play a 4-4-2 formation.
