Cleverley back to face Liverpool

Tom Cleverley is set to return to action for the first time since October in Saturday’s crunch Barclays Premier League clash with Liverpool.

The midfielder has been sidelined with a foot injury since the 1-0 at Everton on 29 October but is ready to make his comeback against Kenny Dalglish’s side.

Cleverley was due to play in the Reserves’ clash with Chelsea at the start of the week until the game was postponed, and he was not selected for Thursday’s Manchester Senior Cup defeat to Manchester City, leading to speculation he would be involved in the first team this weekend.

Sir Alex said at his Friday press conference: “Tom's training well. We were disappointed the Chelsea Reserves game was called off on Monday. But he'll be involved tomorrow.”

Chris Smalling could also take his place in defence after missing the Chelsea draw with a knock, but Phil Jones will only be back for the Europa League trip to Ajax next week.

“There’s not much change on the injury front for us,” Sir Alex added. “I think Smalling could be available, but all the rest is as it was last Sunday.

“Phil Jones got a knock against City, which he never quite recovered from, but he'll be fit for the Ajax game.”
