Patrice Evra was subbed off the field with 25 minutes to play today after repeatedly throwing up, before Nani starting puking up in injury time.

Sir Alex Ferguson is confident both will be fine by next weekend, although concedes he doesn’t really know what is wrong with them.

“We had a bit of sickness with two or three players today, but we’ve got eight days to recover, so hopefully we’ll be okay,” said Ferguson. “Evra just felt it yesterday, but he felt okay to play and it just happened. Maybe the heat brought it on a little bit, it was a warm day. I don’t know what’s happened, whether it’s something he ate or is something going around the place.”
