Hargreaves Hopes for Chelsea

  • 21 September 2007

Owen Hargreaves hopes to be fit for Manchester United's big match against Chelsea on Sunday.

"[The injury] is okay," Hargreaves said of his thigh strain. "I have never really had this injury before so this is new territory."

"I thought I would be fit to play for England in the Israel game, then the Russia game and then Everton, but I've still not done it. I have to take it day by day so hopefully I will be fit for the weekend."

"It is frustrating," he said. "I missed pre-season then I had a run of games and I was really enjoying it. It is just disappointing to suffer something so niggly. But I think these injuries come from last season when I broke my leg."
