Nemanja Vidic played 90 minutes in our 2-0 win over West Brom yesterday, which was our first clean sheet in over a month. He completed more tackles, interceptions, blocks, clearances and won more aerial duels than any player on the pitch.

He hasn’t been thrown in at the deep end since returning from a long spell out with a knee injury but Vidic insists he will improve with more playing time.

“The doctor is managing the games I am playing at the moment,” he told MUTV. “Over the first two or three months I have to really look at that because sometimes I might have a reaction. This is a process I have to go through. I am glad I have managed to play after three months. It is nice to be on the pitch and playing games. Hopefully I can play more often so I can build my form and play better.”
