Sir Alex Ferguson expects to have Paul Scholes back in his squad for the first time since January when Manchester United take on Chelsea on Sunday.

Scholes has been missing with a knee injury and is widely expected to announce his retirement at the end of the season, so Ferguson seems to be preparing him for a farewell appearance.

Danny Welbeck (knee) is out but skipper Nemanja Vidic has recovered from a calf strain.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Smalling, Jones, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Buttner, Nani, Valencia, Powell, Carrick, Scholes, Anderson, Cleverley, Giggs, Kagawa, Van Persie, Rooney, Hernandez.
