Nani: Out for 10 days with a pulled hamstring

The Portugal winger was hurt in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Braga in the Champions League but Ferguson hopes he may only have to miss the weekend trip to Aston Villa.

"Nani is out with a tight hamstring. It will be about 10 days," said Ferguson at his pre-match press conference, allaying fears the injury could have been a tear.

Ferguson also revealed doubts over defender Jonny Evans, who sustained a groin injury in the same game and had to be substituted.

"Jonny is a doubt," added Ferguson. "It is not a serious one. We are monitoring it and hopefully he will be OK."

If Evans misses out, Chris Smalling could continue his comeback from injury with a second game inside four days despite the United boss previously saying he might be rested.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
