With Sir Alex Ferguson declaring that both Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney will miss, through injury, the Champions League tie with Basel tonight, it could present a great opportunity for Dimitar Berbatov to make an impression.

Berbatov, our top scorer last season, has played nothing more than a bit-part this season as first Rooney and Welbeck and then Rooney and Hernandez got the nod from Sir Alex for the attacking positions.

But, tonight, the general feeling is that Berbatov will possibly partner Owen as Sir Alex seeks to get three more points on the board.

Speaking ahead of the tie, Sir Alex has spoken, in his pre-match press conference about the strikers in his squad, who are not regular starters, commenting,

“He`s got a part to play. Dimitar`s one of our squad members and they`ve all got a part to play.”

“He knows his place in the squad and that applies to players like Mame Diouf, Federico Macheda and Michael Owen – they`re not playing regularly either.”

It promises to be an interesting night and a golden opportunity for somebody to shine!
