Hernandez ready

Javier Hernandez escaped serious injury against Chelsea last weekend and could even feature for United against Stoke City on Saturday. 

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 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."

The boss also hopes to be able to call on Rio Ferdinand to bolster United's defence against a Stoke side he says has "made phenomenal progress" over the last few years. The England international missed last Sunday's clash with Chelsea with a calf injury but has trained this week and is ready to return.

"Hopefully I’ll have Rio tomorrow," Sir Alex said. His experience away from home in a game like this is always important. We’ve got a slight doubt about Chris Smalling – we’ll see what he’s like this morning. If he’s back we’re covered well for it."

It's not all good news, though. Nemanja Vidic, who suffered a calf injury in United's opening-weekend win at West Bromwich Albion, still hasn't resumed training. "He's making slow progress. He's still having treatment."
