Manchester United will check on Wayne Rooney's fitness before Sunday's trip to Wolves, while Paul Scholes should return to the side.
Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson will hope that England international striker, Rooney, does not suffer any adverse effects after he stayed down following a challenge by Jon Aurtenetxe in the second half of United's 2-1 Europa League loss to Athletic Bilbao in Spain on Thursday evening.
Rooney did manage to finish the game and even netted a consolation strike as United crashed out of Europe 5-3 on aggregate so it is hoped that he will be available to play at Molineux.
Veteran midfielder, Scholes, was rested in Spain so he is likely to feature, while Ferguson substituted Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs against Athletic Bilbao no doubt as a precaution with one eye on the Wolves game.
Antonio Valencia could return after he watched from the sidelines in Bilbao following a recent hamstring problem, while it is hoped that Phil Jones shakes off a bout of 'flu which kept him out.
Nani did not travel to Spain due to a slight knock and could feature, but Anderson is out for up to five weeks with a hamstring injury.
A victory would take United four points clear of Manchester City - who play Chelsea at home on Wednesday - at the top of the Premier League.
