TEAM NEWS

v West Brom (h)

SIR ALEX Ferguson has defensive worries ahead of the visit of West Brom.

Gary Neville (foot) is a long-term absentee, while the world's most expensive defender, Rio Ferdinand (ankle), and goalkeeper Fabien Barthez (hip) are hopeful of making Friday's clash with Chelsea.

Wes Brown is out for up to three months with a fractured ankle, leaving the United chief with little option other than to stick with the defence which finished Wednesday's shock defeat by Zalaegerszeg.

David Beckham (bumps and bruises) and Ryan Giggs (ankle) should be fit.
