Sir Alex Ferguson: Manchester United boss to make changes against Arsenal

Ferguson revealed Jonny Evans and Michael Carrick both played with injuries in Monday's 3-0 victory over Aston Villa, as United clinched their 20th top-flight title.

Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic are poised to return at the heart of the defence, while Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley and Nani may also feature at Emirates Stadium.

Promising 18-year-old Belgian midfielder Adnan Januzaj could also feature after he was given the number 44 shirt for the remainder of the season.

Looking back on the title win, Ferguson said: "Two of the players played with an injury throughout the game. Jonny Evans and Michael Carrick.

"Next week, I should have Vida and Rio back and I can put Jones into the middle of the pitch and play Vida and Rio together and we'll get the experience going to Arsenal.

"A lot of younger players, the ones who have been on the fringes for the last few weeks, and I desperately want them to feel their contribution has been big.

"Chicharito, Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley and Nani - I think it's important to get them involved in the last few weeks."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
