[/one_half]

Facts:

Sir Alex Ferguson is still without Darren Fletcher, who is out for the season, but full-back Rafael is expected to return from a groin injury.

However, there could still be a place for Phil Jones or Chris Smalling at right-back, though the experienced pairing of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic are expected to start at centre-half.

Up front, Sir Alex’s wealth of options means Chicharito, Danny Welbeck or Shinji Kagawa could be in contention to start ahead of Wayne Rooney or Robin van Persie.

The visitors, meanwhile, are still without injured full-back Maicon (knee) but could welcome Micah Richards (knee) and Jack Rodwell (hamstring) back in time for Monday’s clash.

Out-of-favour defender Joleon Lescott is likely to continue on the bench for Roberto Mancini’s men, though City’s top scorer in the Premier League Edin Dzeko could be in contention for a starting place.
