Manchester United's title bid boosted by imminent return of Ryan Giggs

Giggs will sit out Sunday's Premier League encounter with Fulham but is expected to make his comeback against Liverpool at Old Trafford seven days later.

As Manchester United's Champions League campaign will continue 10 days after that, it is the perfect time for Giggs to return as Ferguson's men bid for glory on two fronts.

"Ryan will be fit for the Liverpool game," confirmed Ferguson. "His performances in training have been fantastic.

"He is getting another plaster on today but we will be getting a fresh player back, which is good.

"For weeks we had to try and work out the best games for him to play in, in terms of freshness and rest. Now he has had a month's rest."

Meanwhile, Michael Carrick will return to the United squad this weekend having missed his side's midweek annihilation of AC Milan through suspension.
