Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand, both of whom missed last weekend’s 3-1 win over Tottenham, are expected to be fit to start against Sunderland.
And United midfielder Darren Fletcher admitted United are desperate for arch rivals Liverpool to do them a favour on Sunday when they take on Chelsea at Anfield.
“We’re relying on a favour from another team, which is not the best position to be in, but we’re coming into form,” said Fletcher.
“We had that week where things didn’t go well, against Blackburn and Bayern, and there was a real low in the squad.
“But we had to pick ourselves up. There was a conscious effort around the place not to feel sorry for ourselves. We couldn’t afford to do that.
“We needed to put some pressure on Chelsea, which is what we’ve done.”
