Sir Alex Ferguson backs tired Man Utd to bounce back

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson blamed his side's defeat by Everton on fatigue from their midweek Champions League win over AC Milan.
But Ferguson is confident United can bounce back and lift their title hopes by beating West Ham on Tuesday.
"We left something in Milan and there was tiredness in the team," Ferguson said after Saturday's 3-1 loss.
"But Tuesday is a massive game now. We've been responding for a long time so I don't expect a problem with that."
Rio Ferdinand will be available to face the Hammers after completing a four-game ban, while his central defensive partner Nemanja Vidic could also come into contention to start after being named on the bench against the Toffees.
But Ferguson will demand wholesale improvement after witnessing a disappointing United display, which he put down to the after-effects of their 3-2 win at the San Siro.
