No let up for Man Utd's defensive problems

Manchester United's defensive crisis has deepened with the news John O'Shea and Jonny Evans have been ruled out of action through injury until January, reports BBC Sport. The pair were both hoping to return to action this weekend following thigh and calf injuries respectively.

United have a total of eight defenders in the treatment room at the moment.
