Sir Alex Ferguson was present this morning at Carrington Training Complex for his weekly press conference.
There is good news going into the weekends fixtures as Manchester United have not picked up any fresh injuries, apart from Nemanja Vidic having “a beautiful bruise” on his cheek after being elbowed by West Ham’s Andy Carroll on Wednesday night.
Quotes from manutd.com, Sir Alex Ferguson said:
“We’ve got a few bumps and bruises from Wednesday”
“Vidic had got a beautiful bruise on his cheekbone and after coming out of that war zone, we’re quite happy no-one was seriously injured.
“The team were fantastic the other night in terms of standing up [to West Ham]. It’s the type of game you get with Big Sam [Allardyce]’s teams. We had to deal with it and I think a point was well deserved.
“We maybe could have won it in last 20 minutes when we had all the play and one or two chances. Nonetheless you have to be satisfied coming back after being down twice and getting a point.
“The last two away games [Stoke and West Ham] have shown how determined we are to win the league. I’ve admired my team in these games. We’ve done very well.”
Manchester United have the extra time to recover from Wednesday over the weekend as they do not play until Monday night at Old Trafford against Aston Villa.
The boss added:
“Every game now seems to be more important than the last one
“When you get nearer to that line that’s the way it is.
“I have the same squad for Monday and hopefully we’ll pick the right team.”
