Rio Ferdinand is fit to play against Arsenal in the Emirates on Saturday.

The 29-year-old defender was reported to have missed training with a groin injury and is set to go for a scan which would reveal the extent of the problem.

However, the club denied in a statement that there would be any trouble with Rio’s fitness. He trained with the rest of the squad and is fit to play against the Gunners.
