Fergie wants to make amends



 

Sir Alex Ferguson has urged his Manchester United to move on to last weekend's humiliating defeat at the hands of Manchester City.

Roberto Mancini's side triumphed 6-1 at Old Trafford as City moved five points clear at the summit of the Barclays Premier League.

United, though, will have an opportunity to recover against Everton in Saturday's early kick-off, although they have struggled at Goodison Park in the past.

Ferguson, though, is confident United can atone for their recent failings.

"It's been a tough week for everybody," said the United boss. "It was a bad result.

"But we have to get over that. That's the name of the game. 

"Players, supporters and staff, everybody has been involved in that disappointment, but we have to kick on."

Everton will be without Phil Neville, Tim Cahill and Royston Drenthe for the visit of United, but do have a fit and firing Louis Saha.

And Ferguson knows United will have to be at their best to extinguish the threat of the former Old Trafford striker.

"We know what Louis is capable of, he has fantastic qualities," he added.

"He did okay the other night when he had a difficult job playing up front on his own, but he's very capable we know that. It's our job to make sure we do our best."

GMF predicted line-ups:

Everton: Howard; Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Baines; Coleman, Osman, Fellaini, Heitinga, Rodewell; Saha.

Manchester United: De Gea; Smalling, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra; Park, Fletcher, Carrick, Cleverley, Nani; Rooney.
