Fergie Has Players To Check On

04 January 2011 03:16
Sir Alex Ferguson has a number of players he will need to check on before the visit of Stoke on Tuesday night, Wayne Rooney included. In fact Fergie will need to run the rule over the fitness of Wayne Rooney, Patrice Evra and Darron Gibson before finalising his Manchester United line-up to face Stoke. Rooney is the most obvious worry after getting a nasty kick on his ankle by Chris Brunt at West Brom on Saturday. Nani (hip) might be available, while skipper Nemanja Vidic escaped suspension for his fifth booking of the season, which came one day after the December 31 cut-off point.
