Manchester United coach Mike Phelan has revealed Paul Scholes could be fit for Sunday's Premiership opener against Reading.

Phelan played Scholes in yesterday's friendly victory at Dunfermline and said: "It was good for some of the players to get some minutes under their belt and they all came through it fine.

"Paul came off the tour early which gave him an extra week or so.

"He has worked really hard, his injury is fine, he's came through the training and he is in contention for the weekend."
