Everyone is Injured

Judging by the story that the official website has put up, I might have a chance at a run-out tomorrow at Old Trafford. Those that are officially ruled out are Gomes, Corluka, King, Lennon, Jenas, Bent, O'Hara and Hutton. That's almost a starting 11 right there.

Harry also stated that Woodgate, Modric and Dawson were all unlikely to play, completing the starting injured 11.

I know United are going to field a weaker team because of injuries as well, but this is ridiculous. Without Palacios until next Saturday at the earliest, we have no cover.

I guess the starting 11 will look something like this: Alnwick, Gunter, Rocha, Zokora, BAE, Bentley, Huddlestone, Taarabt, Bale, Defoe, Pavlyuchenko. Dos Santos, could also start in place of Bale, and the rest of the bench would be made up of academy and reserve players.
