Manchester United received a major injury-boost as three star players trained with the squad ahead of their Champions League game with Olympique Marseille.

But defender Rio Ferdinand will definitely miss the match as he cannot shake off a calf problem.

Michael Carrick, Nani and Michael Owen all took a full part in training as United know if they win the game on Tuesday night they will progress to the quarter-finals.

Nani was expected to be out for a month following a dangerous tackle by Jamie Carragher in the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool that required stitches in his shin

The Portuguese winger is now expected to start with the tie delicately poised at 0-0.

Carrick missed the FA Cup win over Arsenal with an achilles niggle but has shown no after-effects during training.

Striker Owen suffered a hamstring injury in the victory over Southampton in January but has recovered enough to gain a place on the bench.

Midfielders Owen Hargreaves and Park Ji-Sung have returned to training as well but are not in contention to play against Marseille.
