Alex Ferguson has confirmed Wayne Rooney is a doubt for Manchester United's Champions League semi-final second leg with Schalke at Old Trafford tomorrow.

Ferguson reported Rooney has "a tight hamstring" and the forward will be monitored before the United boss finalises his line-up.

Darren Fletcher will play some part after recovering from the virus that has kept him out for a month, although, with his side two goals up from the first-leg, Ferguson will have Sunday's Premier League showdown with Chelsea in his mind when he makes his selection.

Team (from): Van der Sar, Kuszczak, Lindegaard, Rafael, O'Shea, Ferdinand, Vidic, Smalling, Evans, Brown, Evra, Valencia, Scholes, Anderson, Carrick, Fletcher, Gibson, Park, Giggs, Nani, Obertan, Rooney, Berbatov, Owen, Hernandez.
