Leeds United v Manchester United Preview
Leeds manager Simon Grayson
“There will be one enforced changed with Paddy being out. In terms of which way we will go though I haven’t decided fully. There’s a lot of options and permutations.
“All the players are desperate to play as you would expect, but I’d be lying if I said team selection won’t be made without having an eye on our game at Brighton on Friday.
“It’s a tough one because they all want to play and you want to reward players with games like this, but equally we have had other players who have played in the Carling Cup games this season.
“I’ll have a look at things and I will put out a team that I expect to perform, and to give us the best possible chance of winning the game.”
“I went to watch them on Sunday, but I wasn’t reading too much into what I saw because the team is likely to be different.”
“They have a fantastic squad with so many options and I don’t think anyone can second guess what team Sir Alex will put out.
“What you can guarantee is that it will be a strong side, whoever plays, and Sir Alex will want to win the game.”
Man Utd player Ryan Giggs
“There are young players coming through at United but this is an important part of their career.”
“When you look at the lads who came through in my age group, then those who followed; Wes Brown and John O’Shea for instance, when they got their chance, they took it.
“Once you hit 17, 18 and 19, that is what you have to do.
“It doesn’t matter whether it is if you get a chance to train with the first team, or in a match as a substitute, you need to make an impact.
“You need to force the manager not leave you out of the next game.”
“It is tough because there is a lot of quality in the first team.”
“The majority have the quality. That is not really in doubt.
“The question is, do they have the desire and appetite to take it up a step more?”
