After their shock Premier League defeat by Tottenham, Manchester United will be looking to bounce back by beating CFR Cluj in the Champions League.

The Romanian champions defied negative pre-tournament predictions by winning in Braga a fortnight ago, so Sir Alex Ferguson will be acutely aware there can be no room for complacency.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at where the match might be won and lost.

Rafael Bastos v Rio Ferdinand

Scored both goals in Cluj's shock win over Braga a fortnight ago and is an obvious danger man. There have been suggestions of a possible England comeback for Ferdinand, who impressed at Liverpool, but was then caught out by Gareth Bale and company.

Modou Sougou v Patrice Evra

Sougou was a favourite of Andre Villas-Boas at Academia. The Senegal man has the speed United suffered so badly with against Tottenham on Saturday and Evra will need to improve on recent showings to thwart the threat.

Cadu v Wayne Rooney

Experienced Cluj skipper Cadu is part of a massive Portuguese influence at the club. Having made such an impact at Old Trafford on Saturday, Rooney will need to get the better of him if United are to regain their winning momentum.
