Patrice Evra, Nani and Wayne Rooney aren't fit to face Everton on Saturday, but Sir Alex Ferguson remains hopeful that Nemanja Vidic will recover from a knock in training.
It was hoped that Evra (ankle), who has missed the last five games since limping off against Chelsea, would make his comeback, but the game has come too soon.
The same can be said of Nani (groin) and Rooney (hamstring), who also miss out for the Toffees visit to Old Trafford. But, like Evra, they're both expected to be available for the trip to West Ham United next Sunday, 8 February.
"Nani and Evra are both training with the first team," said the boss, "and Wayne will join us on Monday."
Nemanja Vidic is the only question mark for Sir Alex, who has everyone else from the squad that defeated West Brom 5-0 on Tuesday. United will have a late check on the Serbian defender.
“Nemanja got a knock in training on Thursday, hopefully he’ll be all right,” said the boss. “He missed training on Friday but we’re hoping he’ll be OK."
Fabio is fit again after sitting out Tuesday's win at The Hawthorns. The Brazilian left-back made an eye-catching debut
