United Lose Injured Trio

Manchester United need a point against Copenhagen to ensure their qualification to the knock-out phase of this season's Champions League. The mighty Red Devils' are more than capable of getting a draw, even without three of their key players.

Gary Neville's calf injury has recurred once again, thus ruling him out of Wednesday's clash and the subsequent game against Portsmouth.

Ryan Giggs is believed to have a hamstring problem, while Saha suffered a knee injury, so they are also unavailable for the Copenhagen game but could be ready to face Portsmouth on Saturday.

'It's a blow not to have such experienced players, but we've got a big squad,' Sir Alex Ferguson said

There are good news, too: Patrice Evra was stretchered off midway through the match against Bolton on Saturday but he has recovered from his ankle injury. The Frenchman is expected to start at left-back, with Wes Brown at the other end of the back-four. Ronaldo will take over Giggs' role on the left while Darren Fletcher is likely to start on the right flank.

Up front, either Smith or Solskjaer is ready to partner Rooney - I would be a bit surprised if the latter started the match on the bench though it would be interesting to see a Solsjkaer-Smith strikeforce. I do not think this partnership has ever featured for United in a competitive game!

You have enough depth in your squad to ensure the 3 won't be missed. It just an oportunaty for another player to get himself into the team. As a Pompey Fan that will be at the match on Saturday I wish you luck in Europe but not on Saturday. We are a much better team than when you last played against us. We won't make things easy. But in all honest you are favourites for the win playing at home.
