United ace a doubt for Arsenal clash

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson rates Paul Scholes as "doubtful" for Monday's Barclays Premier League showdown with Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Scholes had been expected to play some part in United's 1-1 draw with Valencia at Old Trafford on Tuesday night but, after a minor setback in training, Ferguson fears he will not be able to call upon his influential playmaker against Arsene Wenger's men.

"Paul tried training on Sunday and came off," Ferguson told MUTV. "He will be doubtful for next Monday."

The veteran midfielder has not featured since the victory over Rangers last month, when he picked up a groin injury.
