Manchester United's Nemanja Vidic reacts as referee Phil Dowd sends him off

MANCHESTER UNITED skipper Nemanja Vidic will miss Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup semi-final second leg against Sunderland after he was sent off against Chelsea today.

Vidic was dismissed in stoppage time of Man United’s 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge and he will miss the next three games as a result, albeit the reigning Premier League champions could decide to appeal the decision.

United boss David Moyes already has injury worries over strikers Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, with only the latter boasting a slim chance of featuring against the Black Cats.

Sunderland will head to Old Trafford with a 2-1 lead from the first leg, as the Black Cats look to reach their first major final since 1992.
