Form Guide :
Following the 5-0 destruction of Wigan, Manchester United will be looking to continue their fine run of 5 straight wins with a sixth one. Only one goal conceded in those five games shows their quality of defense despite the absence of Nemanja Vidic. While Blackburn have been struggling, the moral boosting draw at Liverpool showed they can accomplish anything in their day.
Ins and Outs :
Wayne Rooney should return to the starting line-up for United after being rested against Wigan Athletic. Sir Alex is hopeful Rio Ferdinand, Phil Jones and Smalling can make up for the game while Jonny Evans will be sidelined. Berbatov should start after staking his claim in the starting XI with a fine display against Wigan Athletic. For Blackburn, David Dunn and Junior Hoillett join the long list of casualties while Martin Olsson has an outside chance of making it for the game.
United beat Rovers 7-1 at Old Trafford last season with Berbatov scoring 5 times followed by title clinching 1-1 draw at Ewood Park. Phil Jones will be looking to face his former club for the first time since his summer move to the Theater of Dreams.
