Moyes to make key defensive choice

Ryan Fredericks is now recovered from injury but Ben Johnson is likelu to hold onto the right back role for tomorrow evening’s clash wit Genk in the Europa Cup game.

Fredericks is fully recovered from injury but is obviously not match fit and is could be on the bench for the game.

It remains to be seen which of the two will be included in the far more important Premier League match against Spurs on Sunday with the younger player looking so good currently.

He is becoming a key member of the squad on both right and left sides of the defence and it might even be that should the boss want to play Fredericks for match fitness purposes Johnson will get his chance on the other side.

Mark Noble is also understood to be fit and could be included in midfield against Genk and Nikola Vlasic could also get a shout for the game..
