From the Guardian:

A Manchester United player could have a significant bearing on tonight's match at Stamford Bridge. The striker Giuseppe Rossi is on loan at Newcastle United, and Glenn Roeder said, “Rossi has a great chance of playing and nothing would give him greater pleasure than giving his real boss some help against Chelsea.”

From the Mirror:

Alexander Hleb says Manchester United deserve to be streets ahead of Arsenal in the league - because their finishing is so much more clinical.

“I have watched United a couple of times. If they have chances, they use them. Their execution is on the highest level.

“Even if we just converted one out of five chances, we would be right up there with them, even if we weren't quite on the same level. And we would have had fewer problems in the Champions League too.

“Of course we're the ones to blame for missing from unthinkable positions, though bad luck does play its part too.”
