Carrick injury leaves Ferguson with a selection headache..

Injuries to Michael Carrick and Owen Hargreaves have given Ferguson a massive selection dilemma ahead of the visit of Wigan Athletic on Saturday. The worry for the United manager is that Carrick could be out of action with a fractured elbow for up to six weeks. To compound matters for Fergie, Owen Hagreaves continues to be the source of frustration because of his run of niggling injuries. The net result is the Reds Devils have no recognised anchormen central midfield players to select from. Granted the manager can call upon John O'Shea, Ryan Giggs, Patrice Evra or new boy Anderson. But none of that lot would appear to an obvious choice.

John O'Shea is a utility player, but his passing isn't of the highest quality and he can be slow on the turn. Giggs who has been axed of late due to his poor form isn't the right man to play in front of the back four, neither is Evra.

That leaves Anderson and the jury is very much out on him. No disrespect, but Ferguson should be selecting the Brazilian because if he cannot do it against Wigan, what hope is there for him? So for I hope Anderson does start the game because I want to see what he's made of and I want to see exactly why the club shelled out £18m to buy him.
