Ferguson to ring the changes

Sir Alex Ferguson intends to ring the changes as Manchester United look to seal a UEFA Champions League final spot ahead of their crucial Premier League collision with Chelsea next weekend.

• Evra warns against 'disaster'

Ferguson has a delicate selection poser following the 1-0 defeat at Arsenal. With their lead over nearest challengers Chelsea cut to three points, United simply cannot afford to lose against Carlo Ancelotti's men at Old Trafford if they are to remain in charge of their own destiny.

However, they also have to defend a two-goal lead against Schalke on Wednesday night to book a meeting with Barcelona or Real Madrid at Wembley on 28 May. And Ferguson has already decided he must bring in some fresh faces in midweek.

"I will make some changes on Wednesday without question," said Ferguson. "I will bring Paul Scholes back in, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen. We'll need to do that but I will probably keep my experienced players at the back.

"We have a big week ahead. Wednesday is a European semi-final second leg and then the game on Sunday. Two massive games, so we will regroup and freshen it up."

They will do so with Ferguson fearful of the possibility that key decisions could seriously affect United's hope of clinching a record 19th championship.
