Ferguson: Man Utd in best form of season

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted with their current form.

Ferguson says they go into their Champions League tie with AC Milan in their best form of the season.

"This is the best we've been all season," insisted Ferguson yesterday. "The whole team is playing well. We could not be going into this game in a better state mentally or physically."

The United boss is confident about avenging their Champions Cup semifinal exit three years ago when Milan turned a 3-2 defeat at Old Trafford upside down by trouncing their opponents 3-0 in the San Siro.

"The circumstances now are very different," he said. "We had a tough Premier League match at Everton on the Saturday when I had to pick a full-strength team. The same players faced Milan three days later. Milan rested nine players for their weekend match so they were really fresh to face us.

"Not being in the FA Cup has meant we've had a good break this time, and we'll be fresh going into the game."
