Rio Ferdinand on the bench, against Pompey last Wednesday.
Rio Ferdinand is fit to face Tottenham for Saturday's tea-time, while Rafael will start at right-back following injuries to Gary Neville and John O'Shea.
Rio Ferdinand was rested on Wednesday's win over Portsmouth after playing 120 minutes in the FA Cup semi-final. Rio has struggled with a groin problem, but he is to be recalled into the starting XL.
Ferdinand was rested against Pompey because of the important matches that is coming up.
United's next rivals are tough. First, we have to play against Tottenham. The Wednesday, with Arsenal for the UCL semi-final. Then, against Middlesbrough next Saturday at lunch time. And finally, v Arsenal again for the UCL.
Gary Neville will miss the next two weeks after hobbling out of the Pompey victory with a foot injury.
So, Don't forget this game between these fantastic teams. Surely, It will be GREAT!
