Rafael and Fabio da Silva are yet to be fit for Manchester United after Alex Ferguson revealed this double blow to footballscores.com

Five other United players could also not make the trip to France due to injury. Park Ji-Sung, Anderson, Antonio Valencia as well as Rafael and Fabio da Silva have all been sidelined for the Red Devils.

Rafael, Fabio and Anderson all got injured in Saturday’s FA cup tie against Crawley Town.

United’s opponents, Marseille, will also have to cope without Jean Pierre Gignac, one of their two major summer signings.

One player to watch for Marseille at the Velodrome tonight is Loic Remy, the French international, who scored his first goal in two months against St. Etienne on Saturday. Remy, after being declared fit for the clash against United, has said he wants to keep scoring the goals.

“My goal against Saint-Etienne will give me a lot of confidence and the desire to keep the goals coming,” said Remy on his club’s website. “I feel good at the moment, there is a great atmosphere in the squad and it shows out on the pitch.”
