Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson expects to have his big guns back for their FA Cup tie with Liverpool.

Ferguson is hopeful of having two of Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Edwin van der Sar available for the FA Cup tie with Liverpool on Sunday.

The England skipper should be amongst them given he claimed to have been rested on his Twitter page prior to kick-off.

Paul Scholes also has returned to training this week.
