Louis Saha is set to return for the Premiership clash between Manchester United and Aston Villa on January 13 following a groin injury sustained at Newcastle.

Saha was believed to be out for two weeks but it seems his injury was minor and Sir Alex revealed he would start training next week and will almost surely take part in our game against Aston Villa in the league.

‘Louis should be back in training next week and available for the game on Saturday,’ Fergie said.

‘He went for a scan on the groin injury he picked up against Newcastle and it was only a small problem.’

To be honest, I’m always worried when Saha gets injured, given his previous record of problems. I feared he would have to miss the Arsenal game or it would turn out he needs surgery after all so I think we can say we are lucky this time.
