With skipper Gary Neville unlikely to figure at the Reebok this weekend because of a hamstring injury Sir Alex Ferguson may try to rush Wes Brown back to fill in.

Brown has struggled with a groin problem but is back in training and could be drafted in.

Ryan Giggs is certain to return in midfield alongside John O’Shea, and with Park Ji-sung and Cristiano Ronaldo among United’s better performers against West Ham on Wednesday, Ferguson’s only other selection dilemma surrounds his choice of strike partner for Wayne Rooney.

After five games on the sidelines, Ruud van Nistelrooy returned to net the match-winner against the Hammers, which would normally be enough to justify his inclusion.

But nothing can be taken for granted in the United forward department just now as the Dutchman slugs it out with Louis Saha for the right to be regarded as first choice.
