Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted with the depth of his current squad.

"Last season we didn't have the resources to get through to the second leg of the semi-final against Milan in Italy," he said in the Manchester Evening News.

"If we'd had better resources we'd have got through. But we have a stronger squad and a more complete squad this season. The secret is keeping them all fit.

"Today I am lucky I have 22 players here and only Gary and Silvestre not here. It is a fantastic position to be in at this time of the season. If we can keep that it will definitely without question give us a chance.

"The midfield area is where I have the best options. On Saturday we brought a couple of fresh players in, in Fletcher and Carrick, and they were outstanding.

"You could say I have selection headaches. But when you are picking a team at the level we are at I don't think you look upon that as a hindrance to achieving the result."
