Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will go with Park Ji-sung over Danny Welbeck for tonight's blockbuster at Manchester City.

The Sun says Ferguson is considering a five-man midfield tonight to contain City with just 33-goal top scorer Wayne Rooney up front.

Park has not taken part in the last seven games but Fergie wants his destructive powers against the likes of David Silva and Samir Nasri.

Ferguson has praised the Rooney-Welbeck partnership but City are in free scoring form with 12 goals in the last three games and Ferguson wants to stop the supply to Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero.

Centre-back Jonny Evans is battling to be fit. If he fails Chris Smalling will be called in for his first start in 10 games.
