All change for Fergie

All change for Fergie

Alex Ferguson is expected to ring the changes once more as Manchester United continue their Premier League campaign at Bolton.

The United boss selected a completely different starting line-up for the midweek Carling Cup triumph over Scunthorpe, which he missed to go on a Champions League scouting mission in Valencia, and it would be no surprise if only Rio Ferdinand kept his place at the Reebok Stadium.

Ferguson has reported an encouraging return to training for Owen Hargreaves after his knee problems, although the England star is not under consideration for Sunday’s game and Michael Carrick (Achilles) is still sidelined.

Team (from): Van der Sar, Kuszczak, O’Shea, Neville, Rafael, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Smalling, Evra, Fabio, Nani, Scholes, Fletcher, Gibson, Anderson, Park, Giggs, Berbatov, Rooney, Hernandez, Owen, Macheda.
