Quartet set to return ahead of Saturday

Positive news on the fitness front ahead of Saturday's derby:

“We will have Pablo Zabaleta available again following his two-match ban and possibly Stephen Ireland, Patrick Vieira and Wayne Bridge, too which is very good news for us,” he revealed.

“I am very pleased they are back in training and we will see how things go this week, but we won’t be naming our team until Saturday morning, of course.

Out of the four, I imagine that Wayne Bridge is the most likely to see a return to the side as we head into a derby with as much confidence and arguably in as strong a position than we have done for some time.
