Ferguson has key ammunition

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson looks like having all his key players available for Wednesday's Champions League semi-final first leg against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Although Gary Neville is out with a foot injury, Wes Brown was among the first-team squad which trained at Carrington on Tuesday morning, with Ferguson still to decide which four of the 20 outfield players on duty to leave out.

Ferguson also faces a delicate decision up front. Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Dimitar Berbatov all scored in the 5-2 win over Tottenham at the weekend - but it was the half-time introduction of Carlos Tevez which set the Red Devils on the way to victory from 2-0 down.

The Argentinian has already expressed his dissatisfaction at the number of appearances he has made this season but now may be hopeful of facing the Gunners.

It also seems highly likely John O'Shea will be handed the right-back berth, his greater experience preferred to Rafael De Silva, who signed a two-year contract extension on Tuesday.
