Manchester United have received a triple injury boost ahead of their Premier League trip to Sunderland.

Nani (hamstring), Phil Jones (ankle) and Paul Scholes (knee) have all recovered from their knocks.

All three could be involved at the Stadium of Light as United defend a 15-point lead at the top of the table, with Javier Hernandez and Antonio Valencia most likely to be excused due to their lengthy travels during the international break.

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