Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra is expected to be back for their Champions League clash with Galatasaray.

The Telegraph says Evra missed Saturday's 4-0 defeat of Wigan Athletic after suffering from a minor knock while on international duty and was forced to watch from the sidelines while new arrival Alex Buttner made an eye-catching debut.

While Evra will still be regarded as first-choice left-back, Buttner's goal, assist and overall solid performance suggests the 31 year-old has greater competition for his place than in previous years.
