Nani injured for United

Manchester United winger Nani has been ruled out for 10 days with a hamstring injury, missing tomorrow’s trip to Aston Villa.

The Portugal star suffered the problem during Wednesday’s Champions League encounter with Braga and means he will miss tomorrow’s trip to Aston Villa.

“Nani is out with a tight hamstring. It will be about 10 days,” said Sir Alex Ferguson.

Central defender Jonny Evans is a doubt with a niggling groin problem, which may force Alex Ferguson to push Chris Smalling into his second game in four days.

Shinji Kagawa, Phil Jones and Nemanja Vidic (all knee) remain on the sidelines.

Team (from): De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Smalling, Evra, Buttner, Valencia, Carrick, Fletcher, Cleverley, Powell, Scholes, Anderson, Carrick, Giggs, Young, Welbeck, Van Persie, Rooney, Hernandez.
