Fletcher to come on from bench at Blackburn

Fletcher to come on from bench at Blackburn

Edwin van der Sar is set to get a week’s break as Manchester United look to clinch a record 19th league title at Blackburn.

The veteran Dutchman has started 16 out of United’s last 18 games and with the Champions League final to come, Alex Ferguson feels it is time the 40-year-old had a rest.

Ferguson intends to introduce fellow Scot Darren Fletcher from the bench at some stage, with United requiring a single point to confirm top spot.

Team (from): Kuszczak, Lindegaard, Rafael, O’Shea, Ferdinand, Vidic, Smalling, Evans, Brown, Evra, Valencia, Scholes, Anderson, Carrick, Fletcher, Gibson, Park, Giggs, Nani, Obertan, Rooney, Berbatov, Owen, Hernandez.
