by Sam Peoples

After a hard fought draw away to West Ham on Wedneday night, Sir Alex Ferguson talked to the press this morning in his pre-match conference ahead of Aston Villa on Monday. Here’s the latest team news and updates from the boss.

On the latest team news…

We’ve got a few bumps and bruises from Wednesday. Vidic has got a beautiful bruise on his cheekbone and after coming out of that war zone, we’re quite happy no-one was seriously injured.”

On the West Ham game… 

“The team were fantastic the other night in terms of standing up [to West Ham]. It’s the type of game you get with Big Sam [Allardyce]’s teams.

“We had to deal with it and I think a point was well deserved. “We maybe could have won it in the last 20 minutes when we had all the play and one or two chances.

“Nonetheless you have to be satisfied coming back after being down twice and getting a point. The last two away games [Stoke and West Ham] have shown how determined we are to win the league. I’ve admired my team in these games. We’ve done very well.”
