United Injuries Worries

United Injuries Worries

Sadly it's our injuries, not news that 15 of United's first team squad have sudden gone down with swine flu.

Speaking to the Express and Star O'Neill admitted it was doubtful that Heskey would be playing tonight, but for some reason also talked about Osbourne and Salifou.

Heskey went off injured against Spurs with a recurrence of his earlier groin injury and although a scan didn't reveal anything of major concern, it's unlikely he will be fit and raring to go tonight.

Therefore the liklihood is Carew will replace him, or as an outside bet we'll go 451.

Reo-Coker is obviously still out, as is Warnock but Petrov is going to play regardless of his achilles injury - so no surprises there.

Monny added:

'Osbourne trained yesterday, I couldn't really afford at this moment to send him out.'

And even more curiously:

'In terms of fitness, Moustapha would maybe be a bit short.'

Not withstanding the tragic attack on the Togo team, he hasn't played since the turn of the century so technically has never been fit. We are also more likely to see Guzan in midfield at any rate.

The manager ends by mentioning rotation again and saying we couldn't keep going on with the same side. Which is erm, what we've done all season unless an injury has been so bad somebody couldn't play.

if there is ever a time to play 451 then it has to be this evening. Petrof and Milner are going to have a tough game. Lets play Delph in centre mid instead of Carew or Heskey

I agree with a 451. Man U need to win this as much as we do, they certainly won;t be coming for a point so let's play our away from home style counter-attacking game

Blimey if this season has been O'Neils idea of rotation, i'd hate to see the opposite. Never had a manager be so reluctant to make changes or even a sub!! 4-5-1 is the only way, with Delph, not Sidwell!!!!
