Football: O'Shea: Reds can cope with injuries; CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.

MANCHESTER United's flexible friend John O'Shea is confident his team-mates can carry the Red Devils through their present injury crisis.

O'Shea was supposed to be occupying a midfield berth against Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday, only to be shunted to left-back when Patrice Evra pulled out in the warm-up.

United were without a mass of senior internationals at the Olympic Stadium, yet Sir Alex Ferguson's men romped to a 4-2 win. However, with Paul Scholes, Owen Hargreaves and Michael Carrick out, the stand-ins may become a more permanent feature of the United line-up.

"Some players settle in straight away, others need fitness and matches," said O'Shea. "The lads who came in this summer are showing their abilities now and are going from strength to strength."
