Manchester United have received a fine boost with the news that Tom Cleverley is set for a return to first team action.

Cleverley, who is 22 years of age, has been out of action since October with an ankle problem, and his likely return could not be better timed.

The Red Devils play arch rivals Liverpool this weekend, and with the tension between the teams even more heightened than usual thanks to the Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra incident of racist language.

Liverpool have stood firmly behind their man, with Kenny Dalglish saying Suarez never should have been punished in the first place, but it is now expected that the Uruguayan will start the game.

It will be his first appearance since his ban, and with Liverpool having won the last encounter between the two sides last month with a score of 2-1, they will be even more confident with the return of their talisman and most creative player.

A Manchester United side containing the likes of Cleverley and Paul Scholes from the start though would be likely to dominate possession against Liverpool’s more workmanlike midfield, and Saturday’s battle will be intriguing to say the least.
