Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed the form of Antonio Valencia since his return from injury. In the 16 starts and 20 overall appearances, he has scored 4 goals and assisted 12.

“What can I say about his form? He’s been unbelievable,” said Ferguson. “When he first came back into the fold after his long-term injury I played him at right-back one or two times with Nani in the forward position. Once he got a few games behind him his form has been tremendous. When you get players hitting their best form at this time of season, it’s a bonus.”
