    or will he? can see him being on bench to be honest regardless of what Fergie said.

    I think he has been given compassionate leave due to the sad news of Coleen's sister. This could be a factor on his availability.

    Very much split on the choice of wingers. I think Young is a given assuming he is available. Who start in the orher wing position - Giggs or Valencia? Giggs is clearly enjoying the better form, but Valencia is the better tactical selection for bigger games. I think Fergie may stick to the same midfield that played against City, Chelsea and Arsenal, but will Giggs' form sway his decision? Or is Young not a given?

    Evra/Young is a good combo as is Raf/Val, think we have to go with that, don't want to break the partnerships up. Giggs is class coming off the bench and if we need a goal he's shown time and time again that he can set up that goal to win it. Unsure whether it'll be Vidic or Rio, Vidic not looked sharp on the ground at all, I think Suarez could get some joy out of him, so you're probably right going with Rio. I still have doubts over Hernandez as a starter but he's improved with each game he's played and is in form, hopefully he can keep that going.

    So agree with your side right now.

    I'd also go with that team selection. Liked the look of van Persie playing deeper, albeit against Wigan, but himself and Hernandez looked to have a good understanding.

    Fergie: It's a derby game - it's intense, emotional. Everything you can think of in a derby game will be there on Sunday. We go into the game in reasonable form. I obviously made changes last Sunday - Carrick and Evra had a rest after a full contribution in December. They deserved a rest. Robin van Persie came on and scored an unbelievable goal. He's available.

    Any different thoughts on the starting XI following today's news on the injury front?

    Unless I missed something (I wasn't online at all yesterday), i'd stick with your team, the only possible change I can see is Giggs for Valencia but i'd prefer to keep the combos of Evra and Young + Rafael and Valencia... also Giggs will probably be best used off the bench.

    I don't think Rooney will start, I think he'll be on the bench though. Fergie may surprise us, as he tends to do in these games, and start him ahead of Chich (who is even better off the bench). I think he may be wary of Rooney needing a run of games to hit top form though + Chicha is in top form and has struck up a good partnership with van Persie. An outside shot would be Kagawa ahead of both, playing behind van Persie.

    How did we not score then

    Had plenty of good positions in the box. Let's hope we convert more on the second half

    Hope we bring Young off. He's lost the ball everytime it's gone near him. Other than that we're doing well.
