Manchester United will be without Louis Saha and Nemanja Vidic remains doubtful ahead of their UEFA Champions League game with Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday.

Injury-plagued Saha was hoping to make the trip to the Ukraine despite missing Saturday's 4-1 victory at Aston Villa with a long-term knee problem.

The Frenchman joins Gary Neville and Owen Hargreaves on the club's injury list.

United will assess the condition of Vidic over the next 24 hours before deciding whether he joins up with the rest of the squad in the Ukraine.


The centre-back missed Saturday's tie at Villa Park because he was still suffering from the knock to the head he received against Wigan two weeks ago.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: "Vidic is a doubt for Tuesday. He trained on Friday but he is still feeling some reaction to the knock he got against Wigan.

"In that situation you can't take a chance. I'm hopeful he will be ready. We will see how he is.

"He will be close but I'm not so sure he will be ready to play in Kiev."
