Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Javier Hernandez will be fit for their clash with Stoke City.

There were grave fears for the Mexican striker's health after an Ashley Cole challenge left Hernandez writhing in agony on the Old Trafford turf.

"At the time it happened, he had no feeling in the leg. There was numbness and we thought there might have been some nerve damage," Sir Alex told media at his pre-match press conference.

But Hernandez resumed training on Thursday and Sir Alex confirmed: "He's available for tomorrow."
