It's 'agony' trying to choose my strikers - Man Utd's Ferguson

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson admits it is 'agony' trying to select which strikers to play.

The Scottish tactician is spoiled for choice in the attacking department with Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck in top form whilst he still has the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen, Federico Macheda and Mame Biram Diouf to call on.

Fergie insists that he will continue to make his decision based on the game at hand but does admit it is a tough process choosing which strikers to use.

"It's agony - agony," he said. "We try to pick the team that has got a good chance of winning a particular game.

"For instance, in the last few [Premier League] games it's been pretty easy because the form has been so good we've no need to tinker with it and I think that was important."
