Sir Alex Ferguson believes Ryan Giggs' month-long absence with a broken arm has provided him with the rest required to be a major weapon for Manchester United in the title run-in.

Giggs will sit out Sunday's Premier League encounter with Fulham but is expected to make his comeback against Liverpool at Old Trafford seven days later.

"Ryan will be fit for the Liverpool game," confirmed Ferguson.

"His performances in training have been fantastic. He is getting another plaster on today (Friday) but we will be getting a fresh player back, which is good.

The United manager added: "For weeks we had to try and work out the best games for him to play in, in terms of freshness and rest.

"Now he has had a month's rest."
