Park Miss Roma Clash

Manchester United will be without Ji-sung Park tomorrow but Louis Saha and Darren Fletcher are available after recovering from injuries.

The Korean midfielder picked up a knee injury so he joins Neville, Vidic and Silvestre on the sidelines. It's not been revealed how many games he will miss but it's further bad news for our injury ravaged team.

Fergie confirmed that Louis Saha, who was expected to play in tonight's reserve game versus Blackburn, will feature.

"Ji-sung Park got a knee injury on Saturday so he misses out,' Fergie said.

'It`s not been a great weekend, losing Nemanja Vidic and now Ji-sung. But hopefully we`ll cope.'

'They`ve done all their training,' he said, referring to Saha and Fletcher who returns, too.

'My intention was to give them some playing time in the Reserves against Blackburn on Thursday, particularly for Darren, not so much for Louis. I`d pencilled him in for next Saturday.'

It's not good news we've lost Park, too, given he was excellent against Bolton and Rovers but we must somehow cope with it. United won only 2 of their last 12 away games in the Champions League and did not score more than 1 goal away from home since 2003... so the loss of any attacking player is a big one.

In Park's absence, with Saha only nearing full fitness, I expect Solskjaer will start - and I can only hope Fergie won't decide it's time to give Richardson a chance to shine.

My starting eleven would be: vdS - Brown, Rio, The Irish God, Heinze - Ronaldo, Carrick, Scholes, Giggs - Rooney, Solskjaer.

It's pretty straightforward, of course, apart from two positions: it's possible that Brown and O'Shea will be swapped, with the latter playing right-back. And of course we cannot be sure that Solskjaer will start but I'd play him for 45 minutes then introduce Saha.

What do you think? Predictions for the game?

he's not great but would be good to have now. saha not at full fitness yet so we are a bit short up front. smith was awful against boro, solskjaer won't be able to play 90 minutes. the giggs-rooney pair was great against bolton and rovers but for that we need park. or maybe fergie should play ole on the right
