Fabio Da Silva is on standby to take a place in the Manchester United defence at the San Siro if Sir Alex Ferguson ends up not being able to call on John O'Shea and Jonny Evans to face Inter Milan.
Ferguson is hopeful O'Shea will recover from a heel injury in time to face Jose Mourinho's men but Evans was unable to train at the San Siro on Monday evening after limping out of Saturday's win over Blackburn with an ankle injury.
United are already without Rafael Da Silva, who misses out with an ankle knock, plus England duo Gary Neville and Wes Brown as well as Nemanja Vidic, who is suspended, so Fabio could be handed a rare start.
Team (from): Van der Sar, Foster, Kuszczak, F Da Silva, O'Shea, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Eckersley, Ronaldo, Nani, Gibson, Scholes, Fletcher, Carrick, Giggs, Park, Berbatov, Rooney, Tevez, Welbeck.
