Louis Saha believes Manchester United's squad strength will help them through the remainder of the tough festive period.

Whilst the other teams, including Chelsea and Arsenal, have finally started to falter, United are still flying high.

Even with Carlos Tevez and Patrice Evra on the bench, and Edwin van der Sar and Owen Hargreaves out injured, United still have plenty of top quality players to choose from and proved it as they eased past Sunderland with a 4-0 win on Boxing Day, with Saha scoring his first two Premier League goals since September at the Stadium of Light to fire United back to the top of the table.


"The squad we have is amazing," said Saha.

"It is strong in every position. A few players did not even travel on Wednesday and we still have Paul Scholes and Gary Neville to come back.

"We are all aware this is a difficult period. Any team who has not got the right squad will struggle during that time because fitness-wise, it is very hard.

"Mentally, you have to be very strong to get through it. That is why the manager has been very clever."


United will look to maintain their unbeaten run in December when they take on West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday.

The Hammers have proved tough opponents for the Red Devils in recent years, claiming the double over United last year despite their poor campaign.

Whilst the Hammers are bound to be tough opponents, Saha is confident their recent rich vein of form will help them going into the match.

"Every game in the Premier League is difficult but West Ham especially so," he said.

"It has been very hard for us on a couple of occasions down there. But we have every reason to be confident after the results we have had and that is what we have to do on Saturday.",19528,11667_3007376,00.html

Being able to dispose of Sunderland 4-0 while restin key players and with Scholes and Gazza still injured shows just how strong our squad is...

All the talk is about Arsenal and their kids and people don't give us the credit we deserve.

However I think the cracks are beginning to show.

Arsenal draw with Pompey in a deserved draw for both teams.

Liverpool get a goal in the 90th minute after a goal mouth scramble to beat Derby who are at the bottom of the league......

Chelsea draw with Aston Villa and Villa can perhaps feel themselves hard done by....

We are going along nicely, 5 wins in a row, and are expecting Scholes back in January, Park is back and Ronaldo is playing like he did last season....

Oh how the tides have changed and just everything is right in the world of football again, the African Cup of Nations is the sprinkles on top........:)
