BY foxsports • January 21, 2010

Manchester United's defensive problems were made worse after John O'Shea was ruled out for the season because of injury.

O'Shea hurt his leg playing for Ireland in its unsuccessful World Cup playoff against France.

United has also been without defenders Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Jonny Evans, Wes Brown and Gary Neville for spells this season.

The defending Premier League champions are third in the standings but have been eliminated from the FA Cup.
