Nemanja Vidic will return for the Arsenal game, after missing the last 6 for The Reds. Vidic was suffering from a nerve problem in his legs, but Sir Alex could play the Serbian at the Emirates on Sunday.

Vidic will replace Ferdinand, who is serving a four-match ban for ‘elbowing’ Hull City forward, Craig Fagan.

Besides Ferdinand, everyone else has come through last Wednesday’s Manchester Derby unscaved, and the boss believes the Gunners game is ‘the biggest game of the season’…  

“Everyone has come through Wednesday’s game, which is good news,” said Sir Alex on Friday. “Obviously we’re going to miss Rio because of his ban, but other than that, they’re all fit.”

“The game is, to my mind looking at how the league is shaping up, it’s the biggest game of the season for us. With Arsenal going on a consistent run, it’s amazing how this league has changed. If you get a few wins, as I’ve said all along, it seems to suggest that the team that is the most consistent will win the league now.”

“Arsenal’s current form has been very good, so it’s a massive game for us. If Chelsea win their game in hand on us then they can go four points in front. We’re playing catch-up with that part of it, but Sunday’s game is of most relevance to us because both teams have a real chance of winning the league.”
