Finally a bit of good news on the United defensive injury front thanks to a report in the Manchester Evening News.
According to the M.E.N:
Vidic had been ruled out of Serbia’s two qualifiers against Northern Ireland last Friday and the Estonia match.”
Should United’s skipper come through tonight’s game unscathed then there’s every reason to expect him back in action for The Reds at Upton Park on Saturday.
With this season’s defensive crisis almost rivalling last season’s United had been forced to yet again play Michael Carrick in defence.
With Rio Ferdinand, Rafael Da Silva, Wes Brown and John O’Shea injured not to mention Jonny Evans serving a three match suspension, it’s been a testing time for Sir Alex’s team.
With Vidic returning and Ferdinand hopefully fit for the second Chelsea game, there may just be a small glimmer of light at the end of United’s injury clouds.
