Gibson To Start Tonight

United meet Besiktas tonight, aiming to wrap up first place in our Champions League group, with qualification already assured. Sir Alex wants a good, exciting game but he'll field an experimental side with plenty of youngsters.

Darron Gibson, Rafael da Silva and Gabriel Obertan are all likely to start while Welbeck, having recovered from knee injury, and Macheda are certain to be on the bench at least. Gary Neville could also start after a suspension ruled him out of Saturday's 3-0 win over Everton.

"Besiktas` form has been transformed,' Fergie noted.

'They have won their last seven matches and beat the teamthat`s top of the Turkish league 3-0 so they are showing very good form.

"It`s a good fixture because of that. I can try one or two things. It is a great challenge for these young players Gibson, Rafa.

"Sometimes you can`t hold a young man back and that time is approaching for Darron now. He is becoming a good, powerful midfield player."


His partner in central midfield will be probably either Scholes or Anderson, with the latter surprisingly missing the Everton game. Dimitar Berbatov could feature as well, having shaken off an injury which ruled him out of our last two league games though he was fit enough to play for Bulgaria...

Gibson looked very average tonight.Obertan looks promising and I really feel that Wellbeck should be let go in Janurary along with Nani.His touch is awful and he will never be a United player..........ever!!!

Well, the 'youngblood' plan didn't work did it? And as much as Taggart says he isn't too bothered about the result overall, it can't be a good thing can it, to think that the potential of coming second and having to face Barca or Real Madrid in the next round?

I thought everyone on the field, except Macheda and Obertan (Whose final ball was poor). Young blood plan did'nt work, did it?
