Manchester United will look to overcome a difficult few days when they play Lille in the Champions League on Wednesday. United currently top the Group D standings, but Roy Keane's censored criticism of his teammates, following this weekend's 4-1 defeat against Middlesbrough, have sparked a minor crisis at Old Trafford. A victory at the Stade de France in Paris would provide a welcome boost for manager Sir Alex Ferguson. But Lille need the three points equally as they have yet to win a game in this season's competition. Claude Puel's side have won five of their 13 Ligue-1 games this, but 'Les Dogues' have failed to carry their adequate domestic form into European competition. They have, however, held Manchester United to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford in this Champions League season. (AP)
