Manchester United are set to be boosted by the return of Ashley Young from a knee injury for the visit of Stoke City next Saturday.
The England international winger has endured a disappointing campaign to date because of the troublesome problem, but it appears he is now closing in on a return to action.
Young, who has missed out on his country's 2014 World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland this fortnight, is back on the training ground with Sir Alex Ferguson's squad and is building up his fitness levels during the international break.
As a result, the visit of Tony Pulis' Potters to Old Trafford next weekend has been pencilled in for Young's comeback as long as he suffers no reaction to his knee in the next seven days.
Young's return will be a big boost to the Red Devils, who have been hit by a number of injuries to key players in the opening two months of the Premier League campaign.
