United have received a boost elsewhere, however, with Marouane Fellaini available again after sitting out with a knee injury since January 31.
Eric Bailly is also ready to return to action following an ankle injury. The defender hasn't started a game since November but could start ahead of Victor Lindelof on Saturday.
Anthony Martial, meanwhile, is doubtful for the weekend's game, while Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo remain on the injured list.
