Vidic and Van Persie back for Spurs clas.

Manchester United are set to welcome back Nemanja Vidic and Robin van Persie for Sunday afternoon’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

The pair both missed the 5-0 thrashing of Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday evening, but could both be handed starting berths at the weekend, while Ryan Giggs is set to feature – two days after his fortieth birthday.

Victory for David Moyes’ side could see them move to as high as second place depending on other results.

Meanwhile, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has admitted that he was “genuinely a little bit gutted” at Sir Alex Ferguson’s comments about him in his autobiography, the Metro understands.

The England captain, who had the opportunity to move to Old Trafford on a seven year contract at the age of just thirteen, was labelled “not a top, top player” by the former United manager in his autobiography, which was released last month.

Gerrard has also said that he has no regrets over rejecting moves to both United and Chelsea, and remaining with Liverpool for his entire career so far, according to the Express.

The 33 year old is considered to be one of the best ever Premier League players to have never won the division.
