Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson must decide whether to make changes for Monday’s title decider with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson must decide whether to make changes for Monday’s title decider with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Full-back Rafael would appear to be at the most risk of losing his place from the team that threw away a two-goal lead in the final seven minutes of last Sunday’s encounter with Everton.

Phil Jones and Chris Smalling could both step in, whilst Ferguson may also opt to reinforce his midfield with either Ryan Giggs, Tom Cleverley or Park Ji-sung at the expense of a wide player or Danny Welbeck.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Amos, Rafael, Jones, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evans, Fabio, Evra, Valencia, Nani, Park, Scholes, Cleverley, Carrick, Giggs, Young, Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez, Berbatov, Owen.
