Sir Alex Ferguson must be in a healthy mood seeing his team topping the Premiership and their Champions League group, too. His confidence can be further boosted ahead of the visit of Liverpool with the news that three experienced players are bound to be ready for the game.

Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs all missed the 3-0 defeat of FC Copenhagen but they all should be fit to face Liverpool on Sunday. Gabriel Heinze also has some chance though Fergie is likely to stick with the so far impressive Patrice Evra.

‘We will have to wait to see the extent of Ferdinand’s injury but Ryan will be okay, it was just sickness,’ said Ferguson on Wednesday.

‘Heinze is training well and I think he has an outside chance for Sunday. He’s in full training now in terms of rehabilitation and running.

‘We have also wanted to give Gary Neville a full week’s training before the Liverpool match.’
