Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will leave out Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra for their clash with Everton.

The Daily Star says Fergie is still fuming at United's humiliating derby defeat to Manchester City and is ready to make the high-profile duo scapegoats for the thrashing.

The United boss blasted the pair in the wake of the record 6-1 hammering and blamed them for the fact his side conceded three late goals.

Now he is considering leaving them out of the side at Goodison Park on Saturday as United look to get their Premier League campaign back on track.

Both Ferdinand and Evra have produced some average form so far this season and Fergie is seriously considering ringing the changes at the back.
