Manchester United have confirmed that Michael Carrick has fractured his elbow.

The England midfielder sustained the injury during Tuesday's UEFA Champions League clash with Roma, when he fell awkwardly when challenging Mancini.

Scans have confirmed a break, which will rule him out until mid-December.

"Michael has sustained a fractured right elbow and will be out for up to six weeks," said a club spokesman.

The news only adds to United's midfield worries with Owen Hargreaves, Darren Fletcher and Park Ji-sung already sidelined.

FFS, Carrick and Hargreaves not forgetting Flecther aswell, Three central MD's out now, Probably Anderson might get his chance now, Or maybe Fergie will Giggs in the middle with Scholes and Nani out left.
But i possibilty see O'Shea filling in!

This is an amazing chance for Anderson, however I get the feeling fergie will have giggs and scholes in CM, Rooney on the left and Tevez playing behind Saha.

This is dreadful timing with Hargreaves and Fletcher both injured too.

Any update on when Fletcher is back?

I would be surprised if Fergie played without a defensive midfield player against any team (even Wigan since they have Koumas) so if Brown/G Neville is fit I think O'Shea will play in central midfield.

Considering there's a post in the "Announcments" forum from Red Devil regarding abuse to members and calling people names - did you not read it ?

More bad news and very bad timing considering OH is injured.
Not to worry though, we have a very capable squad indeed. O'Shea can play there as well as Giggs and Anderson. In reply to someones question:yes Pique can play there. He played superbly for Zaragoza as a holding midfielder last season. Its annoying that we keep getting injuries but its times like these when the players coming need to take their chances.

i would like to have a proper look at pique, i would be tempted to play him ahead of anderson due him being a more of a holding mid

I don't agree with you swearing at everyone but you do make a point..

Scholes and O'shea in CM is a very valid option and will be fine for us.

O'shea won us the game against Liverpool last season and kick started our come back against Everton away.

Even if Fergie doesn't want to play O'shea in CM we can put Giggs there with Scholes (this was done last season at times) and play Nani and Ronaldo on the wings.

We also have Anderson who could be played in CM.

Rooney can play Left Wing as well..

Why hasn't anyone mentioned Eagles. He has been playing well in CM for us when tested.

O'shea may be played at LB with Brown being out so i'd expect either Eagles or Giggs to start CM next game.

1st of all this is a major blow for us, but one i think we can handle.

in reply to richardsreds above me, eagles centre mid? are you pissed? he's a winger. the only game he played centre mid was against coventry and we lost 2-0

o shea will play centre mid deffo IMO we have plenty of cover in the RIGHT BACK slot and not many in the defensive midfield role

last year our defence was terrorised with injuries, at the start of this year our strikers were hit with injuries and now our midfield has... its only a matter of time until our wingers pick up long term injuries
