London:

With first place in their Champions League group already secured, Manchester United can rest the team's big players for Tuesday's match at Galatasaray.

United can't be caught in Group H after winning its first four games, a far cry from last season's misery in the competition when the team surprisingly failed to reach the knockout stage.

Man United coach Alex Ferguson may choose to leave out Robin van Persie and Rio Ferdinand, saving their legs for the Premier League next weekend.

That gives Galatasaray a better chance of winning in Istanbul to keep the Turkish team in second place and favorite to qualify with United. Cluj hosts Braga in the other group match, with the three teams below United separated by only one point.
