United big guns to return

Alex Ferguson is preparing to recall all his big guns for Sunday’s eagerly-anticipated Premier League encounter with Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Dimitar Berbatov has already been assured his place in the Red Devils starting line-up and will almost certainly be joined by Edwin van der Sar, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra and Paul Scholes, who all missed Tuesday’s draw with Rangers.

Antonio Valencia (ankle) is out until February, so more responsibility falls on the shoulders of Nani.

Team (from): Van der Sar, Kuszczak, O’Shea, Rafael, Neville, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Smalling, Evra, Fabio, Park, Gibson, Scholes, Anderson, Fletcher, Giggs, Nani, Rooney, Owen, Berbatov, Hernandez, Macheda.
