United Sweat On Vidic Fitness

Manchester United’s Sunday win over Liverpool was soured by the injuries sustained by skipper Nemanja Vidic and forward Ashley Young.

Both players limped from the increasingly tightly contested fray with knee injuries, and have likely been ruled out of United’s midweek FA Cup third round replay against West Ham.

Young was substituted at half-time of United’s 2-1 win against Liverpool, after a meaty clash with Reds defender Daniel Agger.

Vidic soldiered on following his own collision, but was ultimately hooked from centre stage towards the end of the match, clearly out of sorts.

Vidic’s injury woes will be of great concern to United.

He has only just returned from a prolonged layoff due to a serious knee injury, and the Red Devils medical staff are already picking and choosing which games are safe for him to play.

The club is expected to release a statement on Vidic’s status early this week, and with a seven point cushion at the top of the table to protect, they will be hoping their skipper’s knee holds up.
