Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has been released from hospital after suffering concussion in his side's 1-0 win over Arsenal yesterday.

The Serbian defender was forced to leave the field during the first half after a heavy collision with his own goalkeeper, David de Gea.

Vidic was sent to hospital as a precaution afterwards. "Nemanja Vidic has been released from hospital after suffering concussion," said a Manchester United statement.

Vidic has retired from international football which means his next game isn't until Manchester United go up against Cardiff on November 24 which he is likely to be available for.

Despite the absence of Vidic from their back line, Manchester United claimed a significant 1-0 win against Arsenal at Old Trafford yesterday evening.

Former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie got the only goal of the match in the first half, when he flicked Wayne Rooney's cross beyond the grasp of Wojciech Szczesny in the Arsenal goal.

Head injuries in football having been making headlines for much of the past week after Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was knocked unconscious against Everton eight days ago.

Szczesny also took a blow to the head which looked as though it may end his involvement in the game - but like Lloris he managed to play on for the entire 90 minutes.

While Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has been criticised for allowing Lloris to continue, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he would have substituted his goalkeeper if he's been advised to do so by his medical staff.

"I listen to the doctor," he said. "If he says to me he has to come off, he comes off - no matter if we have seven men on the field, I do it. You have only one life and you have 60 games per year."
