Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he faces a selection dilemma ahead of Sunday's crucial Premier League clash with Chelsea.
Ferguson is without centre-back Nemanja Vidic for the encounter, which can be seen live on Sky Sports 1 and HD1, after he was dismissed in last Saturday's 2-1 loss to Liverpool.
The Scot handed 20-year-old defender Jonny Evans a surprise start alongside Rio Ferdinand in the UEFA Champions League stalemate against Villarreal on Wednesday evening.
Evans put in a composed display against the Spanish side and has in turn handed Ferguson a selection headache as he plots his starting XI for the match at Stamford Bridge.
The Red Devils chief said: "I have a decision to make on Sunday. I need to work out whether I go with Evans' ability but lack of experience or whether I opt for Wes Brown's experience and Gary (Neville) at full-back.
"Gary was only playing his second competitive match last night but he did very well.
"That will bring him on if I decide to play him on Sunday but Evans was excellent as well."
Evans' appearance against Villarreal was his fourth in a United shirt, while he featured 33 times during his loan spell at Sunderland and has recorded 11 caps for Northern Ireland.
