United face a tough test at Ewood park where the physical Blackburn side will be
aiming to put one over the English and European Champions.




Notes

  • United will be without Possebon and Carrick. Hargreaves, Scholes, Rooney and Neville are doubts
  • Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking for his third goal in 3 domestic games
  • Dimitar Berbatov is looking for his first League goal for the Red Devils
  • Alex Ferguson is set for his first encounter with an ex-Devil in Paul Ince




Form

Blackburn Rovers - are looking for their 4th succussive
victory in all comps after putting Fulham, Everton and Newcastle to the sword.

Manchester United - Are looking for their first back-to-
back win of the season after a sluggish start




Last seasons fixtures

At Ewood Park - Blackburn Rovers 1 - 1 Manchester United
At Old Trafford - Manchester United 2 - 0 Blackburn Rovers




Key Players

Blackburn Rovers - Matt Derbyshire is their top
scorer of the season with three to date. United will have to keep the youngster
under tight conditions if they are to minimize his impact on the game

Manchester United - Cristiano Ronaldo is back
playing and is finding the net also. With goals in his last two domestic games, the
winger will be looking to add to his tally.

This is an absolute MUST win for confidence sake!! The main advantage of Rovers last season was one man,and one man only Brad Friedel...........he kept at least 4 'goals' out when we were there,now they have shaky robbo in nets,im not sure if they will with stand the pressure,despite our injuries.Ill be watchin this up in the lak district,last time i was there we beat Sunderland 1-0 with a Saha goal :D

I think this is the first encounter between Paul Ince and Fergie since he left us isn't it?

Blackburn always try and make it difficult but I am unsure as to how Ince is going to face this. I predict a hard tackling game and a few yellow cards. Will need a strong referee to keep control.

This will be a tough one, but a must for Utd. I am aware it is only early in the season, but we can't keep playing catch up this early in the season.

I hope Berba plays to his near best, I know he obviously isn't fully match fit yet, but as long as he throws no tanrums and learns how to chase back and help out like Tevez and Rooney he should help up as great deal on Saturday. As for Ronaldo, still not there yet but half way back to his best.

I will take a 1-0 for Saturday, please.

I think we we'll beat them. My score 0 - 3 goals from Berbatov Ronaldo Tevez.

Blackburn is not performing well these days.

100 % a win for us.

my view 3-1 united

vds still scares me at times although at the moment hes all we have

its a plus to have vidic back for sure although im no longer worried if eather him or rio gets injured cause evans looks class imo

midfield could be tricky, its sad to see scholes injured again i just hope he can come back and make the impact he used to

but we have anderson who will/ is worldclass on his day and i have n doubt hell step in and do the job just like last season

as for his partner........ o'shea, fletch carrick? my call fletch i think o'shea will be saved for a bench role and carrick wont be risked.......

wait carricks got a broken foot so why am i even talking about him :|

so fletch anderson it is imo

as for up from easy berba and tevez with a goal each and perhaps one from ronaldo we shall see

The trip to Ewood Park is always a tough one and Fergie meeting up with Ince could add some spice to the occasion.

The injury list we have in midfield at the moment is worrying and the squad may be tired after flying back from Denmark.

I'd take a scrappy 1-0 win in this fixture.
