Strong squad for Madrid

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has named a 22-man squad for the Champions League trip to Real Madrid.

The Reds have included Phil Jones and Jonny Evans despite both players being substituted with knocks during the weekend win against Everton.

Anders Lindegaard is back in the squad after missing the last two games, as is Ashley Young who has not featured since last month's victory over Liverpool, but there is no Paul Scholes, who has been sidelined recently with a knee problem.

Squad: De Gea, Lindegaard; Büttner, Evans, Evra, Ferdinand, Jones, Rafael, Smalling, Vidic; Anderson, Carrick, Cleverley, Giggs, Nani, Valencia, Young; Hernandez, Kagawa, Rooney, van Persie, Welbeck.
