The in-form United with five consecutive wins including two 5-0 triumphs in their last two outings over Wigan and Fulham will host bottom team Blackburn. After managed to steal one point from Liverpool, the battling Blackburn manager, Steve Kean knew that he had tough job. He been under tremendous pressure from Blackburn fans that very vocal asking him to step down.

Ferguson who gave his support towards his adversary for tomorrow match also facing tough situation where most of his first team players are in the injury list.

In goal keeper department though no injuries the grand old master also face tough selection.

Ferguson will again have to choose between the impressive Anders Lindegaard and David de Gea in goal, with the former featuring in the last two and keeping clean sheets in all five of his Premier League appearances this campaign. I believed Lindegaard again will be at the line up.

In defence Carrick surely starts as central defender. After losing Evans and Smalling was reported will be in long break, Ferguson had to play Jones who said will recover timely for the match as Carrick partner. The impressive Valencia again at rightback with Evra as the other fullback.

Gibson performed superbly against Wigan for this he surely in the line up. Giggs was his partner but maybe Rooney will play this time. Nani and Park will be the wingers. After scoring a hat trick surely very hard to drop Berba. He will play together with Hernandez at the front.

Maybe too much to ask for another  5-0 win but it is not possible and it will be a perfect gift to Ferguson who will turn 70 tomorrow.
