Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic is confident being fit for their clash at Liverpool next week.

The Sunday Mirror says Vidic is winning the battle to make his long-awaited return against Liverpool next weekend.

Manchester United skipper Vidic has been out since the opening weekend of the season after suffering a calf injury at West Bromwich Albion.

But Vidic was given permission by United to join up with the Serbia squad and is in line to start against Slovenia on Tuesday.

If he comes through that game without any problems, Vidic is likely to make his comeback for United at Anfield against their arch rivals next Saturday.
