United hit by injuries

Manchester United travel to France missing Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Anderson, Johnny Evans and Michael Owen for their Champions League encounter with Marseille tomorrow tonight.

Michael Owen has not recovered in time from a groin injury, while Ferdinand has been ruled out with a calf injury, along with Johnny Evans who is also ruled out.

Sir Alex Ferguson chose to leave Ryan Giggs behind no doubt to keep the evergreen midfielder fresh for United’s Premiership run in.

Chris Smalling will now partner Nemanja Vidic in defence after impressing against Manchester City last week.

Rafael and Fabio Da Silva return to the United squad after recovering from injury, and Sir Alex has also included youngsters Joshua King and Ryan Tunnicliffe, along with Bebe and Gabriel Obertan.
