Van der Sar Is Back - Foster's Time Is Over

Edwin van der Sar returns to the Manchester United team after missing the start of the season because of a broken finger. The Dutchman was sorely missed as his deputy Ben Foster did not impress between the sticks.

'Edwin's fit and he will play,' Sir Alex said.

'He's trained for quite a while now but because it was a hand injury, you don't take any chances. He had a Reserves game about 10 days ago and came through that fine, it was the confidence booster he needed.'

So many problems in such a short space of time is bad news for a goalkeeper aspiring to be United's number 1...
