Defensive duo fit for United

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson expects to have Phil Jones and Chris Smalling back for Manchester United's Premier League trip to Arsenal on Sunday.

The pair both sat out last week's home win over Bolton after failing to recover from the after-effects of a collision during the previous week's Manchester derby. However, Ferguson reported both have trained this week and should be involved at the Emirates Stadium.

"Phil and Chris will be fit," said Ferguson.
