Update: Paul Scholes Fit At 35

Sir Alex Ferguson has glowing praise for Paul Scholes, saying the midfielder is as fit at 35 as he has been in years.

"If he looks stronger it's possibly because he went through last season without picking up any serious injury," Ferguson said. "He's done well, because he's had plenty of injuries over the years and been out for three- or four-month spells. His fitness was great last year, as the season went on he got better and better, and he's carried on the same way. He and Ryan Giggs have yet to miss a training session and we've had 40 since the start of pre-season. I don't know how long he can carry on, but I can't see any real deterioration in his game."

Looking to today's game, the United manager added: "We lost to Burnley last year, as well as Fulham. We didn't expect that. It was our own fault, we had 19 chances and didn't hit the target. It was careless, whereas we knew Fulham might be a step too far with emergency centre backs. We were doing OK in the 3-0 defeat at Craven Cottage until we went a goal down, then we ended up conceding three. Losing at home to Aston Villa for the first time since I came here was hard to take too, and that didn't help, but we were fragile when we went to Fulham last season. If we had drawn that game I think we might have won the league.
