"Louis looks like missing this one (Lyon). He has had a recurrence of the injury he had at the start of the season.

"We played him in the full game against Everton and once he had done that, France called him up and he got injured playing for them. To be honest, I didn't think he was ready for international football but they had players injured and called him up and now he has another injury.

"Wayne is still a few weeks away, but he is getting closer. He is training on his own with the remedial department and with injury he has had, is still under the medical side and we have to take their advice. At this moment in time it is not football keeping him out."

In addition Wes should be back any day now, John O'Shea is expected to be out for a further 5 weeks and Gary Neville is out but for how long it is unsure.

Obviously the longest term casualty is Ole for the rest of the season.
