Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is set for an injury boost.

The Daily Mail says the injury crisis crippling Manchester United will end soon with Ashley Young and Chris Smalling preparing to make welcome returns to the side.

And there's more good news for Sir Alex Ferguson as Phil Jones is on course to make his comeback after missing the start of the season due to a knee injury.

Smalling returned to full training last week and Young's knee complaint has now been resolved after missing the last five league meetings.

Jones underwent a knee operation last month, another setback after the back problems he suffered throughout the summer.

HIs rehabilitation has been successful and is on course be back in time to face Arsenal on November 3.
