It'll be interesting if Ferguson gives Evans a run in place of Vidic. I doubt this will happen though, in such a big game. It's a big blow to lose Vidic, especially for this game - where its likely Drogba will start. Vidic is one of the very few defenders that can destroy Drogba even if Drogba's on form.

Im quite interested to see what fergie will do as well. he has options thats for sure.
I wouldnt be surprised if he put O'Shea in there or Evans. They were both
immense at centre back for their countries last week.
He could move Brown across and give Neville a chance or Hargreaves or even
young daSilva, although the latter would be very unlikely, especially in such a
big game.
Its great to know we have such options but Im more concerned about the midfield
tbh and I really hope Ronaldo is back cos we are missing that **** BIG time.

Brown Rio Evans/O'Shea Evra
Ronaldo Scholes Hargo Nani
----------Berba Tev/Roon

Prediction 1-1.
Id be happy with anything but a loss.
Having Berba and Ron back will be HUGE.
Cant wait but Im nervous.

A lot of positives to take from this game despite conceding a late goal, which was
always going to come if we are being fair.
It was a predictable scoreline with the 2 best teams in Europe slugging it out.
We defended extremely well at times and young Evans did very well as did Rio,
Evra (my MOTM) and the returning captain Neville. There were some groans all
around Im sure when he was on the team sheet but he repayed the managers faith.

A point a SB is excellent and we are only beginning to go through the gears.
October will be our month and th eplayers that need more games will get them.

Lets not forget that Nev, Berba, Hargo and Ronaldo all need more games, so under
the circumstances we did well. Park and Hargo were great on the wings tracking
back and Fletch did well in the middle.

At least now we have got 3 very difficult away games out of the way and we can
now concentrate on moving up the table.

A few disappointments would have been Ronaldo's dive and Rooney giving away
that free kick right after Fergie had bawled him out of it for dwelling too long on the ball.
The game was crying out for Tevez to come on for Berbatov, but it wasnt to be.

All in all, a good point and Chelsea dont extend their lead.
Bring on Bolton at home where I predict a riot.
the players will be raring to go and will do a job Im sure.
