Midfield duo Michael Carrick and Owen Hargreaves will again miss out when Manchester United face West Brom at Old Trafford tomorrow.
It had been hoped the pair would be fit after recent ankle and knee problems, respectively. Carrick may return to training at some point next week, but he will not be considered, while Hargreaves is slightly further behind as he battles a long-standing tendinitis injury.
Ryan Giggs will definitely play but Alex Ferguson must take a late check on Anderson and Carlos Tevez, neither of whom were due back from international duty until this afternoon.
Provisional squad: Van der Sar, Amos, Neville, Brown, Rafael, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Ronaldo, O’Shea, Fletcher, Anderson, Giggs, Nani, Tevez, Berbatov, Rooney, Welbeck.
