Wayne Rooney is a doubt for Manchester United’s FA Cup tie with Liverpool on Saturday.

The England striker picked up knocks to his calf and ankle in last week’s 2-1 victory over Arsenal and did not train yesterday.

If Rooney does not make it, Ferguson could be missing 10 first team players. Rio Ferdinand is nursing a back spasm, while Nani could miss out with an ankle injury.

Anderson and Ashley Young are doubts, while Tom Cleverley has only recently begun first team training after an ankle injury.

United will definitely be missing Darren Fletcher, Namanja Vidic and Michael Owen.
