While deputising at right-back for Rafael, who was forced off early on Thursday with a groin injury, Antonio Valencia was sent off leaving David Moyes with a crisis along his backline.

It is expected that Chris Smalling will make the switch from the centre to provide cover at right-back. Nemanja Vidic will likely be reinserted into the centre-half position.

Last week, Phil Jones picked up a knee injury that will keep him out for two weeks. However, both Michael Carrick and Robin van Persie could undergo a late fitness test before the match.
