Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that his team is in a ‘healthy’ position and only Ashley Young is unavailable.
Young had picked up a knee injury against Liverpool and he is struggling to recover his health.
However, the good news is that Jonny Evans has returned today, so Sir Alex Ferguson now has a lot of options to choose from.
“We’re quite healthy in terms of the players available” Sir Alex explained. “Ashley Young’s the one that’s still not available. Hopefully Jonny trains today, which would give us another defender. That’s good news. I’ll make one or two changes tomorrow. Rio Ferdinand will play. Definitely.”
United will travel to Craven Cottage on Saturday, after they put up an excellent first half performance against Southampton. However, they did not manage as well in the second half, and struggled at times to keep their 2-1 lead.
“Fulham got a fantastic result midweek and we hope we can navigate this trip. We’re at the stage where every result is important,” the boss told reporters.
“Wednesday was important for us and we really dug in defensively. We blocked shots and cleared headers. I was impressed with that but we were a bit lucky to win the game. The first half, we could have been five up at half-time, but a one-goal lead isn’t enough.”
