Subject: Overmars Set To Miss Cup Replay Marc Overmars is almost certainly out of Arsenal's FA Cup semi-final replay against Manchester United at Villa Park. The Dutch winger has a damaged ankle which forced his substitution in the goalless game on Sunday and manager Arsene Wenger admitted: "He is a big doubt. "It will be a big blow for us if he can't play because he's a player ideally suited to the big match occasion. He can score goals as well as make them. He will travel with us for the game and we will wait until the last possible moment but the signs are not good." Wenger is set to choose between Frenchman Kaba Diawara and Swede Fredrik Ljungberg as a replacement for Overmars, who is Arsenal's top scorer in the FA Cup this season with three goals. Ljungberg was a 90th-minute substitute for Overmars on Sunday and almost snatched a dramatic late winner when his shot was saved by Peter Schmeichel. Arsenal have no other injury worries and Wenger confirmed that World Cup star Emmanuel Petit will return to midfield after completing a three-match suspension. Petit will replace Argentinian Nelson Vivas, who was sent off on Sunday, although his one-match ban will not come into force until Arsenal's Premiership clash with Derby on May 2.

Subject: United injury worries Tuesday, April 13, 1999 Manchester United have injury worries over three defenders before tomorrow's FA Cup semi-final replay with Arsenal at Villa Park. Republic of Ireland international Denis Irwin looks certain to miss out after being injured by a tackle from Ray Parlour in Sunday's goalless encounter. Phil Neville stands by to replace Irwin but his brother, England right-back Gary, has a bruised foot and will undergo a late fitness test. Henning Berg is again a non-starter after being hurt in last week's Champions League clash with Juventus. The Norwegian has a knee ligament injury and manager Alex Ferguson has already ruled him out of next Wednesday's return leg in Turin.

Subject: ELLERAY LOOKING FORWARD TO REPLAY By Bill Pierce, PA Sport. Referee David Elleray is looking forward to taking charge of Arsenal's FA Cup semi-final replay against Manchester United at Villa Park on Wednesday, despite being pilloried in some quarters for disallowing a potentially decisive Roy Keane "goal" in Sunday's 0-0 deadlock. Harrow schoolmaster Elleray admits he was ready to award a goal until persuaded to consult linesman Graham Atkins, who had at first flagged United's Dwight Yorke offside in the build-up to Keane's 38th-minute strike, but then lowered - and raised it again when the Irishman's shot hit the net. Elleray confirmed: "It wasn't my call. I acted exactly on what my assistant told me. At the time I didn't see whether anybody was offside and I still haven't seen any video replay or anything. "My assistant told me that there was an offside in the build-up to the goal, and I have to accept his view. He is an experienced FIFA linesman and his verdict was certainly good enough for me." Elleray revealed that the controversy, which at first caused United manager Alex Ferguson to call it "a ridiculous decision", came because Ryan Giggs was too fast for the linesman. The referee said: "It was a situation where the ball was played through, and my assistant indicated the player was offside and in the active zone. "He thought the ball was going to run out of play for a goal kick and so he dropped his flag. But Ryan Giggs was so fast that he caught up with the ball before it could go out, crossed it - and, in the ensuing play, a goal was scored. "But, having dropped the flag, he put it back up again to indicate it was offside. I went over and consulted with him, and he said it was offside in the build-up." United's contention was that Yorke was not interfering with the play at the time when Giggs chased the ball down the left wing. But it was Yorke who was in position to back-head the winger's cross for Keane to crash home, and Elleray said: "What FIFA and the FA talk about is active play and whether a player is involved in it. "You can either be involved by going for the ball or you can actually be in a position where you are interfering with an opponent, pulling a defender wide, by your movement in or around the penalty area. That is also being involved in the active play because you are part of that move." Elleray also sent off Arsenal defender Nelson Vivas after just four minutes of extra-time and has now confirmed that it was for a second bookable offence which means the Argentinian, who elbowed United's Nicky Butt in an off-the-ball flare-up, will serve only a one-match ban. Elbowing an opponent normally means a straight red card and a three-match suspension, but Elleray said: "The decision is based on the severity of the offence - whether it was a violent attack or just reckless. "The Arsenal player was guilty of something between the two. It wasn't that dangerous but it was a bit like his first booking. He just blocked off the opponent." "That was my judgment and, yes, referees do still have some room to make their own interpretation of the laws. I'm all for refereeing these big games as sensibly as possible and, if you can, allowing them to flow. "I'm looking forward to being the referee again in the replay, and in fact it will be the same assistants as well plus the same fourth official, Alan Wilkie." Vivas's first yellow card at Villa Park was his eighth this season - which normally brings a one-match ban in its own right. But the Football Association have ruled that any player collecting an eighth booking after the second Sunday in April will be subject to only a warning. Vivas will be suspended for Arsenal's home Premiership game against Derby County on May 2.

Subject: Zidane set to face United Tuesday, April 13, 1999 Published at 14:09 GMT 15:09 UK Zinedine Zidane should be fit for the United clash World Footballer of the Year Zinedine Zidane looks set to be fit for the European Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester United - despite suffering a recurrence of his recent knee injury in Juve's 2-2 draw with Bologna. Zidane had to be substituted at half-time due to his injury, triggering fears he would miss the match against United next Wednesday. A Juventus spokesman said: "We'll know more after today's (Tuesday) training session in which Zidane is expected to play but the injury doesn't appear that serious." The French midfield star missed three matches in March because of the injury but he returned for Juve's 1-1 draw with United at Old Trafford and produced a superb performance despite playing with heavy strapping on his right thigh. Ticket-mania Zidane will be anxious to be fit for the second leg against United, a match which Juventus say is causing ticket-mania in Turin. The Italian club claim they would need a 200,000 capacity stadium to satisfy demand for tickets after a row broke out among their fans ahead of the Champions' Cup semi-final second leg. Demand is so high for tickets that an umbrella body for the scores of regional Juventus supporters clubs around Italy has launched an official complaint to the club about the lack of tickets. A ticket retailer in Turin was also forced to call in the police after trouble broke out at his outlet. Huge demand Renato Opezzi, stadium manager at the Stadio Delle Alpi, said: "The people who are complaining are the ones who never come to the ground. " We've given priority to those who show their attachment - the season ticket-holders. "And anyway, you would need a stadium with 200,000 seats to satisfy demand for this match and we've only got 67,000. "Of those, 43,000 have gone to season ticket-holders, 6,000 have gone to the English and 2,000 have been destroyed in order to keep the two sets of fans apart. "The rest have all been sent to regular outlets. By Saturday, there will only be 3,000 or 4,000 left."
