Antonio Valencia is relieved Manchester United's defensive injury problems have finally started to ease.

Such has been the strife Sir Alex Ferguson has been forced to endure this season, the Ecuador wide man has alternated between his usual right wing role and that of full-back. But his performance in Saturday's Barclays Premier League win over Bolton emphasised why Valencia is not the only one who is glad more accustomed options to fill the right-back role are at hand.

"It is really pleasing thinking that we are getting everyone back to full fitness," he told MUTV. "It is nice to be back in my favoured position, that I have always played in throughout my career."
