Man Utd face Basel without Hernandez, Rooney

Manchester United face Champions League opponents FC Basel without their first-choice attack.

Manchester United face Champions League opponents FC Basel without their first-choice attack.

Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez were the big-name absentees from Manchester United's training session today.

Rooney missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at Stoke with a tight hamstring, while Hernandez was forced off during the game following a heavy challenge by Jonathan Woodgate.

It means Sir Alex Ferguson will have to choose between Danny Welbeck, Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen for his strike pairing against FC Basel in the Champions League tomorrow.
