Manchester United striker Louis Saha has declared himself fit after a long battle with injuries.

Saha has had several muscular worries since joining United in 2004 but has mainly struggled with a cartilage problem in his knee.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been cautious in his treatment of Saha and the Frenchman is now confident his injuries are behind him.

Saha is set to feature against former club Fulham on Monday and is targeting a long run in the side.

"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."

Hungry for goals

Saha has not scored since netting from the penalty spot in United's 2-0 win over Chelsea in September and he admits he is desperate to start finding the target to boost his confidence.

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

"I am hungry for goals and the good thing about being in this team is that

you know we will always create chances."

United dropped to fourth over the weekend and Saha knows they cannot afford to slip up against Fulham.

He added: "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."
