About Nani and other's being available or not,I don't take anything SAF says in the lead up to a big game seriously

lol, true, could be just games he's playing with City to catch them unawares maybe?
i hope so at least.

I'm hoping the Scousers can be depended on to give Chelsea a challenge today, rather than roll over like they at the end of last season!!

Going to be a tough game.
Considering Chelsea have Fulham at the bridge, you would expect them to win that. United can not afford to slip up, don't want to fall 5 points behind again.

Win is the only option!

I really want to play 4-5-1 in this one. But if Berbatov is not fit, I cant see Hernandez playing well by himself so hoping Berba makes it

Wouldn't say Chelsea are certs to beat Fulham. Derby game, Fulham are the draw specialists this year, more draws than us I think, and Chelsea's squad is pretty thin at the moment. Obviously we have to win regardless because we're playing Shitty. But the Chelsea game isn't as straightforward.

I really hope Nani can get fit for this one, if he's not I can't see us winning tbh. Given Chelsea's result yesterday I'd happily take a draw on Wednesday night - not got a good feeling for this game

hopefully, if all fit, the team will be something like:

VDS
Rafael
Ferdinand
Vidic
Evra

Nani
Scholes
Fletcher
Park

Hernandez
Berbatov

but i have a feeling fergie might go with 5 in midfield and play carrick, leaving hernandez on the bench

4-5-1 for me, VDS, Rafael, Rio, Vida, Evra, Giggs, Carrick, Scholes, Fletch, Park, Berbatov... and bring Hernandez on when their defence tires... if we need to.

Team obviously depending on fitness and illnesses.

him running at their left back whoever it might be is sure to bring us some chances

Mate,I highly doubt my favourite player Gary Neville will play.But even if he does don't under-estimate him.Last season he ripped Bellamy apart and can easily do that to Milner.Your scorelines are just play station scores.talk some sense ;)`

Nani also a doubt, I think everyone is a doubt to be honest. Either got injuries or illness.

Giggs has never missed a Manchester Derby.Since his United debut,he has played in 33 consecutive derbies.The closest he come to missing one was in 2008-09 season when he played the last 5 mins of the game.

The atmosphere is already building in the centre of Manchester and the police are out in force outside all the pubs
