Manchester United head to Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday with Alex Ferguson admitting that not only is he worried about his porous defence but he now has a problem in attack - albeit a "good" one.

United, who are placed second in the domestic league, beat Braga 3-2 in the Champions League on Tuesday after trailing 2-0 inside the first 20 minutes to top Group H with maximum points from their three games. Javier Hernandez, who has often been overlooked this season despite scoring three goals from four starts, netted twice to rescue the win and the Mexican has given manager Ferguson a selection dilemma for the clash at Stamford Bridge.

With Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck also vying for spots upfront, United look spoilt for choice against a Chelsea side who have their own problems.

Among them is the continuing absence of skipper John Terry, serving the second of his four-match English ban. They also lost midfielder Frank Lampard, who has a calf injury that caused him to limp out of Chelsea's 2-1 Champions League defeat at Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday.
