Merson won't be risked for Man U clash (3 Dec)
John Gregory has stated that he will not risk playing a half-fit Paul Merson against Manchester United for fear of further problems with his back injury.

It was recently discovered by England doctors that he has a back problem which is going to involve a 3 game missing period,  giving his back time to recover.

It is feared that if he plays against Manchester United he could substain a serious injury,  meaning a much longer lay off
