Man Utd boss Ferguson reveals big four back for Chelsea clash

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will welcome several stars back for their trip to Chelsea.

The Reds boss hopes to name Wayne Rooney, Nani, Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young in his party to face the Blues at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

"We're a bit better in terms of injuries," Sir Alex said at his Friday press conference. "We hope Wayne Rooney, Nani, Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young will all be in the squad.

"It's more likely Tom will play against Chelsea Reserves on Monday, but he'll travel. Rooney and Nani have trained for the last two days."

The news is less positive on injured goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard, though David De Gea should be fit after missing the midweek win over Stoke.

"It looks like Lindegaard will be out for at least four weeks, maybe five to six, with ankle ligament damage," Sir Alex added.

"We don't know what his recovery from injuries is like, so we'll have to wait and see, but I would have thought at least four weeks."
