Louis Saha is out of United's Champions League clash with Lille on Wednesday night, while Paul Scholes and Patrice Evra are both doubtful.

Saha has gone for a scan in a bid to pinpoint the problem which he suffered in training on Monday. Alan Smith should play a part in the match, most likely as a subtitute, with Wayne Rooney and Henrik Larsson up front.

There was further bad news for the Reds after Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Darren Fletcher's ankle injury is worse than first thought. The Scottish international missed United's 1-0 at Anfield at the weekend but was expected to return within two weeks.

However, a scan has highlighted damage to the ankle ligaments and Fletcher could miss the remainder of the season.

"Darren went for a scan earlier this week," revealed Sir Alex at his pre-match press briefing. "The news wasn't good. He'll be out for two months. It's a blow for the lad."

Scholes picked up an injury against Liverpool at Anfield, while Evra got a knock in training, though he did do some light work on Monday.

The Reds are already without Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the next three weeks following a minor operation on his knee.
