Manchester United defender Chris Smalling and midfielder Ander Herrera will have their condition assessed ahead of Tuesday's Capital One Cup tie at Sky Bet League One outfit MK Dons.

Smalling came off in the first half of Sunday's 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw at Sunderland with a groin injury, while Herrera sat out the clash due to an ankle problem.

It is not expected that new signing Marcos Rojo's work permit situation will be resolved in time for him to make his debut in the cup game and it remains to be seen whether fellow defender Rafael will be deemed fit enough to feature.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Rafael, Valencia, Smalling, Jones, M Keane, Blackett, James, Fletcher, Cleverley, Anderson, Herrera, Young, Mata, Kagawa, Zaha, Januzaj, Van Persie, Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez, Powell, W Keane, Varela, Lawrence, Vermijl, Wilson.
