Boss: Time to regroup

Sir Alex Ferguson will freshen his team up for Wednesday's Champions League clash with Schalke ahead of next Sunday's title showdown with Chelsea.

The Reds are still in a great position on both fronts despite the 1-0 defeat at Arsenal and the manager acknowledges the two fixtures are "massive" as the season reaches its climax.

With a two-goal lead against the Germans and a three-point advantage over the champions, United will still be confident of picking up two positive results at fortress Old Trafford, and the manager is too experienced to allow any doubts to creep in at this stage of the campaign.

"Wednesday's a European semi-final second leg and then we've got the game on Sunday," he told MUTV. "They're two massive games.

"We'll regroup and get them freshened up. I'll make some changes, without question, on Wednesday.

"We'll bring Paul Scholes back in. Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen, fresh players. We need to do that but, also, I've probably got to keep experienced players at the back. We'll be alright.
