Ronaldo might be benched against Celtic as Carlos Tevez and Anderson are back in contention after missing Saturday’s 4-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Paul Scholes, Owen Hargreaves and Michael Carrick miss out of course and they are joined in the stands by Patrice Evra who was taken off with a hamstring injury against West Brom and won’t be risked tomorrow night.

He should be OK for Saturday,’ Fergie said, referring to Saturday’s trip to Goodison Park. The manager also confirmed that he was considering relegating Ronaldo to the bench as he’s still not at full fitness and has played a lot of games in recent weeks.

If he won’t start then Nani is likely to take his place in the side. Anderson and Carlos Tevez are likely to be handed starts after missing Saturday’s win because they arrived back very late from international duty.

Celtic have numerous injury problems themselves – Vennegoor of Hesselink, Chris Killen, Georgios Samaras, Andreas Hinkel are all out while Marc Crosas and Gary Caldwell are major doubts – and have picked up only 1 point in their 16 Champions League away games.
