Ashley Young returns to the Manchester United squad after a five-match absence for Sunday's Barclays Premier League encounter with Everton at Old Trafford.

Young has been sidelined by a knee injury but bolsters the Red Devils' wide options ahead of the Champions League showdown with Real Madrid.

Phil Jones (shingles) and Michael Carrick (hip) have both recovered from the problems which prevented them reporting for international duty this week.

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