Sir Alex Ferguson admitted there was no sign of Manchester United's injury crisis abating following the 3-0 defeat to Fulham.

Nemanja Vidic's failure to recover from a calf strain saw United field
a three-man defence consisting of midfielders Michael Carrick and
Darren Fletcher and rookie Ritchie de Laet.

Ferguson has lost seven defenders to the treatment room and he fears
for United's title hopes if they stay sidelined for too much longer.

"The way the league is at the moment I hope today is not too damaging. I hope it doesn't cost us the league," he told MUTV.

"We'll have to get our defenders back to give us a proper chance of
going for the league, there's no question of that. But if we get them
back we'll be back in it.

"The quicker they're back the better. They're doing their best. The
medical team and physios are working overtime to get them back.

"There's no light at the end of the tunnel at the moment, that's for sure."
Inexperience

United were convincingly beaten by Fulham as goals from Danny Murphy, Bobby Zamora and Damien Duff sealed their demise.

Ferguson, however, refused to blame his inexperienced backline as the
crippling injury list finally caught up with them at Craven Cottage.

"There was a fragility at the back and we couldn't do anything about
that," he said. "You have to have sympathy for the players in that
respect.

"It's difficult to play midfielders at centre-back and Ritchie de Laet
is only 21 years of age. He's not got the experience yet needed for
these type of matches.

"Of course it was a terribly soft goal for the first one and that gave them the platform to build on.

"The goal after half-time took care of us. It was a poor decision by the referee for the third goal.

"We couldn't get behind Fulham at all and their defence is very well organised and it was a difficult day for us."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The defensive issues are from being sort out by the looks of it. I hope this doesn't cost us real bad. We need to sign a defender or two in Jan if the defense can't be sort out by then. This post match interview from Fergie shows we're fragile and far from confident at this point in the campaign.

The news earlier was that Rio will be back by new year, wasn't it? Hope he gets back. We desperately need defenders.

Well after that first season he hasn't played much. A few games at the start of last season and that's it.


Although that goal against Arsenal was quality.
