Ahead of Saturday's big match against Arsenal, Ferguson told MUTV: "It's good we don't have a midweek game.

"Owen Hargreaves played his first game for almost two months [against Middlesbrough] so this week will allow him to freshen up. I don't think there's any doubt he'll be available on Saturday.

"Anderson got a little bit of a knock but I think he'll be okay. Things are looking better."
