Papers: Injuries hit Reds
Fergie Defence In Crisis Manchester United have only four fit defenders for tomorrow's Champions League showdown with AC Milan. And the Italian team's boss Carlo Ancelotti is licking his lips at the prospect of being able to exploit United's problems in their semi-final clash. Rio Ferdinand, Irish rookie Craig Cathcart and makeshift full-back Kieran Richardson have all joined the queue for the treatment room, leaving Sir Alex Ferguson grappling with yet another injury crisis. Ferdinand's loss is the biggest blow. The England centre-back will be out for two weeks after hobbling off with a recurrence of his groin trouble during Saturday's draw with Middlesbrough. Old Trafford boss Ferguson expects Patrice Evra to return for the first leg against Milan. Wes Brown, John O'Shea and Gabriel Heinze are the only other defenders he has fit.
