Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to hand 17 year-old Ghana-born striker Danny Welbeck a shock start tomorrow against Manchester City.

"I may bring in the boy Welbeck, possibly from the start," he said.

"The boy has a chance of making it. We think he has that temperament.

"I think we want to keep Cristiano Ronaldo as a wide player, so we are short up front. Louis Saha is not back and we could have played Ryan Giggs through the middle but I think Welbeck has got the temperament.

"We will see tomorrow but I need to be very, very clear about everyone's fitness."
