Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed Nemanja Vidic is in contention to feature against Cardiff City this weekend despite having had to come off against Arsenal with concussion.
The Red Devils centre-back had starred in United's first-half against the league leaders before coming off with the injury, however Moyes has insisted that the injury is not a serious one.
United's captain has played an integral role in the side over the last month and his presence and leadership in United's team could prove valuable once again this weekend.
Reported by Manchester United's official site, Moyes told reporters: “Concussion is something which you do need to rest. He’s had his rest and we’ll bring him back and hopefully he’ll be fine. It's not a serious injury - concussion can be extremely serious - but he had a week off afterwards and we’ve given him a chance to recover. We’ve picked him up slowly from there.”
Manchester United head into Sunday's game off the back of three straight Premier League wins and will be desperate to beat the side sitting in 14th place in the table.
The Red Devils currently lie five points behind league leaders Arsenal and will be hoping another three points this weekend will further move them up the table.
Ahead of this weekend's clash, the United boss also praised Cardiff boss Malky Mackay on the job he's done at the Premier League new-boys.
The Manchester United boss continued by saying: "Malky's done a great job, not just this season, but in past seasons with other clubs he’s been at. He's done a brilliant job at Cardiff and they should really be thankful they've got him. He got them back in the Premier League and they're doing all they can to stay there. You can see he’s working really hard at it.”
