Darren Fletcher insists his pain at Manchester United's present plight has not been lessened by his successful battle against ulcerative colitis. Fletcher's career was hanging in the balance after he was forced to undergo surgery to cure a medical condition that had bothered him since 2010. Had the procedure not worked, the 30-year-old's life as he knew it would have been shattered.

Manchester United Team News Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be in a state of ambivalence regarding squad selection. Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher have both made successful returns to first-team action, completing 77 and 90 minutes respectively in the 2-1 home win over Newcastle United in the League Cup on Wednesday.

Anderson had put Ferguson's side in front just before the break, and United's youthful defence held on to seal a last-16 berth. Despite recording five successive victories since that disappointing defeat at Everton in their opening game, there still seems to be an obvious deficiency in the red ranks.
