Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits Nemanja Vidic is only an outside chance to make their clash with Liverpool.

Ferguson hopes to have Nemanja Vidic, Tom Cleverly and Chris Smalling back from their injuries after the international break but admits that for Vidic and Cleverly particularly the Liverpool game on October 15 may come too soon.

"Vida and Tom will need to do a lot of good training to be considered for that sort of match," he said.
