Manchester United host Liverpool tomorrow with no new injury concerns in the squad. That’s welcome – but we still have only John O’Shea to play right-back, or maybe Jonny Evans.

However, apart from the right-backs and Hargreaves, everyone is fit which means that Fergie will probably freshen up his team.

“The difficult thing I have to do now is pick a team. Given that you always want a bit of freshness for such an important match. Liverpool have that extra day`s rest compared to just two-and-a-half days for ourselves, so I have to consider my team very carefully. Hopefully I pick the right team.”

It’s almost certain that Scholes and Giggs won’t start – and it’s a good thing, too as we need the energy and workrate of Fletcher and Park against the runners of Liverpool who will almost certainly try to squeeze the life out of the game.

There are rumours that Tevez might start – well, he was magnificent against Fulham and scored two goals in three games against Liverpool so it might not be a bad idea. Still, I’d stay with the Berbatov-Rooney pair. The rest of the team picks itself I think: Carrick, Ronaldo, Evra, Vidic, Ferdinand, O’Shea, Van der Sar.

What do you think?
