Wes Brown is standing by to replace Jonny Evans as Manchester United head to Burnley for their first league meeting since 1976.
With Nemanja Vidic (calf) and Rio Ferdinand (thigh) already ruled out and Evans a major doubt, Brown is set to partner John O'Shea in central defence on Wednesday night.
Michael Carrick and Anderson are set to make their first appearances of the season, while Michael Owen could be included after being introduced as a substitute in Sunday's win over Birmingham.
Team (from): Foster, Kuszczak, Fabio, De Laet, O'Shea, Evans, Brown, Cathcart, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Fletcher, Scholes, Anderson, Gibson, Giggs, Park, Nani, Tosic, Rooney, Berbatov, Owen, Macheda, Welbeck.
