OK I'll make a screen name bet with some one who posts regularly. I say Milan are going to win. Who wants it?

Go on then I'll bet you. I think Milan might beat Man U but can't see them beating Chelsea or Liverpool in the final. If Kaka gets injured they're fucked.

Manchester United have been hit by an injury crisis ahead of Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first leg against AC Milan at Old Trafford.

Only 10 outfield players were able to take part in full training on Monday.

Defenders Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville, Nemanja Vidic, Mikael Silvestre and Craig Cathcart will definitely miss the game, while Patrice Evra is doubtful.

If Evra misses out, Darren Fletcher is set to fill in at right-back, with Wes Brown and John O'Shea in the centre.

Left-back Gabriel Heinze is United's only other fit defender.

Midfielders Ji-Sung Park and Kieran Richardson will miss the game, along with striker Louis Saha.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was unable to train on Monday but is expected to be fit to take his place on the bench.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said: "We're down to the bare bones. We are playing with 12 players.

"It's not a time for feeling sorry for ourselves. It's time to show what we are made of. It's been well documented in the history of our football club that we do it the hard way anyway.

"We have to restore the players' energies for Tuesday because it is a massive game for them and it's a game they should enjoy."

In contrast to United, AC Milan were able to rest a host of players for their league match on Saturday.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti has a virtually fully-fit squad available, with striker Alberto Gilardino returning after suspension.

Keeper Dida has been included in the squad but is a doubt with a shoulder injury, while Ronaldo is cup-tied.

Ancelotti was encouraged by the news that Ferdinand will not feature at Old Trafford but is wary of United's attacking threat.

"Ferdinand is a very important player for their defence," he said.

"But we will have to be careful and keep possession of the ball but that could be a two-edged sword, because if we do not do well our opponents could hit us on the counter-attack."

I agree, putting Fletcher at right back makes us vunerable even to a Conference/MLS team. But this is the way United roll, against all odds. I predict a score draw at Old Trafford with us doing them in Milan, ala Juventus in 1999

We have to stop Kaka, they gotta stop all 5 of our attackers. 6 if Carrick's got his shooting boots on again this week. Gabi 'Action Hero' Heinze will be fine on his own at the back

3-2 Man U wins. I wouldn't care about this game if i didn't hate Man Scum fans so much. Glory chasing faggots. Milan still have a great chance to pass to the final

Good game though. Man U deserved to win. Though all is needed is a 1-0 home win for Milan to proceed. Wasn't aware they had so many old players though.

Still in the balance. Man U want to pray that Kaka gets injured before the 2nd leg.

When's Vidic fit? Cos the back 4 as it was on Tuesday will not be able to stop Milan scoring a couple more. I fancy a Milan - Chelsea final with Chelsea winning it.

I fancy Moan U cause of that last goal. Had it stayed 2-2 I'd have taken Milan. But I think that goal completely changes things.
