Saha Fit And Raring To Score

Saha Fit And Raring To Score

Louis Saha would give everything to score tonight against Fulham after seemingly getting through his injury nightmare.

The French striker has started United's last two games and completed more than 160 minutes. He did not look especially sharp but he's confident he will regain his cutting edge soon.

'Goals are the main part of the game for any striker and it would really help me if I could get one,' he told the official website.

He will have the chance tonight. Rooney is back but I expect him to start on the bench, with the prospect of bringing him in if things do not go as planned or we can simply give him playing time when the match is already decided as a contest.

Either way, we must win and Saha is aware of that.

'It is imperative to get a result. We know it will be hard against them, it always is. But after what happened against Bolton, we are in a bad position and we have to react.'

Bad position, he said, but for him it must seem like a heaven after a whole year blighted by injury problems. 2007 was a fine year for United: Premiership title, FA Cup final, Champions League semi-final, some memorable performances on the way... yet for Saha, it's been a nightmare that kept on returning.

'It has been difficult but I am injury-free now,' he said. 'A cartilage problem is always difficult. It seemed a bit dangerous and I was a bit worried at one point because it is never good to play with a swollen knee.

'But I am clear of it now. The manager is doing the right thing and I am trying to forget about it.
