Harry Redknapp's men, currently bottom of the table, are desperate to reduce their seven-point gap to safety, while United are closing in on a 20th league title.

And Mbia, whose side saw a five-game unbeaten league run come to an end in a 4-1 defeat at Swansea, is under no illusions about the challenge that lies ahead.

"I have confidence in what we can do because everyone is together, everyone wants to fight for this club," the 26-year-old told the club's official website.

"We are desperate to stay in the Premier League. Every game for us now is going to be a battle, a fight.

"Personally, I am feeling very fresh. I just want to do the very best I can for the club every time I am on the pitch and I am looking forward to Saturday.

"It's going to be a big game for us and it is very important that every player gives 100 per cent for themselves, for the club and for the fans who are right with us.

"We have big respect for Manchester United but we will give everything we have in this game. And then we will see what will happen.

"This game on Saturday is very, very important. After the 4-1 result against Swansea all of us know exactly what we want to do and what we need to do in this match."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

One Point And One Conclusion For United

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
