Rio Ferdinand, Wes Brown and Ji-sung Park all made their return from spells on the sidelines against the Baggies, and with Patrice Evra (ankle) and Nani (groin) also on the mend the boss has plenty of reason to be positive.
"Things are looking up and players are starting to come back," he told MUTV.
"Patrice may have a chance for Saturday against Everton. If the game had still been on Monday I'd say he'll definitely play. But he's still got a chance of making it.
"Nani should also be fit for Saturday as well. The ones still unavailable are Jonny Evans, Rafael and Fabio, and Anderson."
