Sir Alex Ferguson says injuries picked up by Ashley Young and Nemanja Vidic in Manchester United's 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Sunday are 'nothing serious'.

Both men were forced to leave the field early at Old Trafford after taking knocks.

Young failed to appear for the second half after hurting his knee in a tangle with Daniel Agger, while Vidic took a blow to the head and is also believed to have taken a bang on the knee which has caused him so much trouble of late.

Ferguson, though, has played down any suggestion that the pair could be kept on the sidelines for a prolonged period of time.

Young and Vidic have undergone medical tests and the results of those scans have shown no extensive damage - although Young is expected to miss a midweek FA Cup third round replay with West Ham and Sunday's trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

Ferguson told MUTV: "Actually, Nemanja's knee is okay.

"It was concussion. He had a little bit of concussion but he's okay and fine. He trained yesterday (Monday) and was good.

"Obviously, Young has got a dull knock, a little bit of a strain on the knee, but it's nothing serious.

"I think he'll be back next week. Maybe not for Tottenham but, the week after, he should be okay."
