Manchester United’s top scorer Robin van Persie has shaken off a hip injury and will be fit. Defender Phil Jones will not be available for Saturday’s league game because of an ankle injury.
Norwich will be without midfielder Alex Tettey, who is out with a knee injury, with on-loan Sporting Kansas City forward Kei Kamara pushing for a place in the starting XI.
Sir Alex Ferguson: “Robin van Persie has trained this week – he’s available for tomorrow. His hip was very tender but he’s OK now. Tomorrow is an important one because Tuesday will look after itself. It’s an occasion on Tuesday whereas tomorrow is the mundane practical situation in that we need to win.”
Chris Hughton: “It is a massive game (United) have on Tuesday. I think it will affect the line-up, but I don’t think it will affect the quality of the line-up. Irrespective of the team they put out, we know it is going to be one of high quality. At this moment, they are the team who have the best quality squad in the division, there is no doubt about that.”
