The United squad set off yesterday afternoon for tonight’s clash against Aalborg in the second of United’s Champions League campaign. Two notable omissions from the squad were Gary Neville and Owen Hargreaves. With all four teams in United’s group on even point after 2 draws in the first set of games; United need to bring home all three points from Denmark. In the other clash Celtic travel to Spain to take on Villarreal; even after beating Aberdeen at the weekend Celtic are still the underdogs in the game.

Sir Alex Ferguson is reported as restricting Gary Neville to one game per week indefinitely, as the United captain returns from injury. This means that Gary Neville is likely to be missing a number of United’s mid week clashes until he can return to full fitness. Wes Brown who has been match fit and performing to a reasonably high standard in the matches he has played is likely to be Neville’s replacement. Ferguson is expecting to play a full strength squad against Aalborg, which means we are likely to see the standard back four, Brown on the right, Evra on the left and Ferdinand and Vidic in the centre with Johnny Evans likely to be n the bench again. The midfield Ferguson has been varying and changing players within the squad in the midfield and I expect we will see the majority of changes here. Ronaldo has a high chance of getting another match start on the right with Park exerting his influence on recent games, I expect he will start on the left with Scholes starting since Neville remained at home alongside hard working Anderson. Tevez, Rooney and Berbatov are all competing for starting positions up front, after the Ronaldo-Rooney engineered second goal over the weekend I expect Rooney will get a start; it is extremely likely that whichever striker starts on the bench will make an entrance after the first hour to replace one of the starting strikers.

Every United fan is aware as to how important this game is as United struggle for consistent results and after the upset at Copenhagen two years ago; we all expect Ferguson to go out all guns blazing in an attempt to secure the game within the first hour and then ring the changes to give some of the younger talent a run on the field.

The match kicks off at 19h45 BST on ITV4 and we will all be very apprehensive ahead of this European clash.
