According to the latest injury reports, Manchester United is in much better position to face off the Blues tomorrow with the full squad in perfect condition, leaving Sir Alex Ferguson with the tough decision which six players will be left from the Champions League starting line-up. Some reports claim that Paul Scholes, who missed the last Champions League final with the Red Devils after suspension, has been promised a spot on the starting team. It's still unknown if Ryan Giggs will play in the Champions League final, if he does, he would beat Sir Bobby Charlton's club record of 758 appearances. Giggs is likely to start, as he is one of the five Manchester United players with Champions League final experience.

 Chelsea will also pack a full squad in the Champions League final game tomorrow, but some of the players will enter the field right after injury recovery. Blues' captain John Terry, who dislocated his elbow on the final day of the Premier League season, appears to have made a fast recovery and is expected to start on Wednesday against Manchester United. Defender Ricardo Carvalho has also recovered from a back injury, as well as Didier Drogba, who had knee issues earlier. It remains unknown whether such fast recoveries would be able to hold these top players on the field for the full 90 minutes tomorrow. Chelsea defender Ashley Cole hurt ankle in a challenge with Claude Makelele during Tuesday's training session and went off for treatment, his situation remains unknown at this time.
