Dimitar Berbatov is in contention after returning to training following a hamstring injury. Gary Neville have got a problem on his groin but he'll be playing on Sunday, while Paul Scholes, with a problem on his knee, will be a doubt for the United squad.
Alex Ferguson has vowed not to rush back to Berbatov, who has missed the last two United's games. Alex has said that hamstring's problem is difficult to deal with. Berbatov has never had this problem and The United boss want to preserve him.
Berbatov is a strong doubt for this Sunday and maybe he might start on the bench.
Dimitar Berbatov was injury on international duty, with the Bulgarian team.
United from: Van der Sar, Foster, Kuszczak, Neville, Rafael, O'Shea, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Ronaldo, Nani, Carrick, Fletcher, Anderson, Giggs, Park, Rooney, Tevez, Berbatov.
- If Wayne Rooney scores one goal, this will be the 100 club goal with Everton and United.
- Ryan Giggs will be playing the day after his 35th birthday.
- John O'Shea will be playing his 200th appearances for United.
- Patrice Evra is the only player that has played all games for United squad this season.
- Giggs could break another Sir Bobby Charlton's record. If Ryan plays on Sunday, he'll have appeared more times for United in a Manchester derby than any other player. Currently, Ryan and Bobby are locked on 27 appearances.
