Manchester United could be boosted by the return of key trio Ashley Young, Chris Smalling and Antonio Valencia next weekend.

Winger Young has been out of action since injuring his knee against Fulham in August, defender Smalling has not yet featured because of a foot injury and midfielder Valencia is expected to be fully fit after a recent injury which saw him leave Anfield on crutches after United's 2-1 win last month.

Valencia has since come on as a substitute against Newcastle United last weekend and is expected to join the aforementioned pair when the Red Devils meet Stoke City on October 20.
