Nani set to miss Manchester United FA Cup tie at Liverpool

Nani adds to United's injury woes with winger set to miss Liverpool clash

Nani is almost certain to miss Manchester United's FA Cup clash at Liverpool with a foot injury he suffered in Sunday's win over Arsenal.

The Portugal winger limped off following a challenge from Laurent Koscielny and left the Emirates with his right foot in a protective boot that was kept elevated on the team's train journey home.

Nani has told friends he expects to be out for at least two weeks, but United will carry out further scans, fearing he might have cracked a metatarsal.

Rio Ferdinand is doubtful for the trip to Anfield with a back problem, but Phil Jones's ankle injury is not as bad as feared after he was carried off at Arsenal.

Michael Carrick (hamstring) and Wayne Rooney (knee) should be fit.
