Vidic returned from a three-match red card ban and a groin injury to start and play all 90 minutes of Manchester United's 4-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

The defender did take a shot during the game, although it was the only stat of note in the non-clean sheet effort. With Manchester United all but out of a spot in the Champions League, manager David Moyes could play around with a number of different back four options, as Vidic will be leaving for Inter Milan this summer, having already signed a pre-contract to play for the Serie A side.

Vidic will miss Saturday's Premier League match at West Ham after picking up a red card during Sunday's match against Liverpool.

Vidic, who already announced he will join Inter Milan in the summer, hasn't been a great fantasy option this season, and missing the West Ham match surely doesn't help matters. The good news for United is that he will return for the Manchester derby on March 25.
