Ronaldo Suspended

Ronaldo Suspended

Sir Alex Ferguson is set to ring the changes for the Boxing Day clash with West Brom at Old Trafford.

Cristiano Ronaldo is suspended but Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Edwin van der Sar are all expected to return after missing the midweek Carling Cup win at Birmingham.

Louis Saha could find himself on the bench despite scoring twice at St Andrews, although with four games in eight days over the festive period, the French striker is expected to be heavily involved.

Bryan Robson has put West Brom's recent Barclays Premiership revival down to the 'spine' of his team now functioning on all cylinders.

The Baggies had collected eight points from a four-game run before suffering a 1-0 defeat at Portsmouth last weekend.

'Neil Clement and Curtis Davies are developing a good understanding as central defenders and getting to know each other's game well,' Robson said.

'In the same way Ronnie Wallwork and Junichi Inamoto have been very good in the centre of midfield while Kanu and Nathan Ellington link up well in attack and compliment each other.'



Manchester United (from): Van der Sar, Howard, Neville, Bardsley, O'Shea, Silvestre, Brown, Ferdinand, Richardson, Fletcher, Smith, Scholes, Giggs, Park, Rooney, Van Nistelrooy, Saha.

As a Baggy, is this supposed to cheer me up that Ronaldo won't be playing? Now if the rest who are returning were missing, then I might be cheered up! PS: I think you mean 'complement each other' NOT 'compliment'. They are more likely to insult each other on Boxing Day.
