Manchester United rest key players for Galatasaray

Sir Alex Ferguson has left out most of his big names from Manchester United's squad for Tuesday's Champions League encounter with Galatasaray.
Wayne Rooney was among those to miss out, even though he was able to return to training on Monday morning after sitting out the weekend defeat at Norwich with tonsillitis.
David de Gea did not travel even though he also trained on Monday after having his wisdom teeth removed last week.
It means Ferguson's team will have a strong infusion of youth, including Nick Powell, the summer signing from Crewe.
Josh King, Davide Petrucci, Tom Thorpe and Ryan Tunnicliffe are among those hopeful of having some involvement.
Squad: Johnstone, Lindegaard; Rafael, Buttner, Jones, Thorpe, Vermijl, Wootton; Carrick, Petrucci, Cole, Cleverley, Fletcher, Anderson, Powell, Young, Tunnicliffe; Hernandez, King, Welbeck, Macheda.
