Manchester United winger Nani will be suspended for the Carling Cup final against Aston Villa later this month after being sent off in the Barclays Premier League 1-1 draw against the same opponents.

The Portuguese player was red-carded for a two-footed challenge on Villa skipper Stiliyan Petrov after 29 minutes and faces a three-game ban.

Carlos Cuellar gave Villa an 18th-minute lead but an own goal from James Collins four minutes later earned the visitors a deserved point.
