The injury crisis is easing but our back four will still be ridiculously mish-mash against Villa on Saturday. But at least Dimitar Berbatov, Wayne Rooney and Nemanja Vidic are all set to be available.

‘We expect Vidic to be ready for Saturday. Ryan is fit and I also think Rooney and Berbatov will both be okay,’ Fergie said.

‘If I have that availability I am okay and I`ll be happy enough because I can play a back four of Fletcher, Carrick, Vidic and Evra.’

In that case I think we can expect a 4-3-3 line-up as Fergie will want to pack the midfield in order to protect the back four and prevent Villa getting the upper hand in the centre of the park. It will probably be something like this:

Kuszczak – Fletcher, Vidic, Carrick, Evra – Gibson, Scholes, Anderson – Valencia, Rooney, Giggs
