Sir Alex Ferguson insists there is no need to panic at Manchester United's growing injury problems.

With Darren Fletcher sidelined indefinitely with a chronic inflammatory bowel condition and Nemanja Vidic ruled out for the rest of the season with his cruciate ligaments so badly ruptured the swelling has still not gone down, United have suffered two body blows in a week. In addition, Tom Cleverley, Anderson, Michael Owen and twins Rafael and Fabio will miss Sunday's trip to QPR.

Yet Ferguson continues to maintain he has enough cover to render a trip to the January sales a waste of time, and he said: "We are not panicking. You have to be tempted if the right player comes along but they are not there so what do you do? There is no point crying about it. You have the injuries and you deal with them."
