The Manchester United injured trio of Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Patrice Evra are all expected to be available for the top-of-the-table clash against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Monday.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been anxiously waiting on the news on all three players but it appears that all three will be ready to line-up against the Premier League leaders early next week.

Ferdinand limped off during the 1-1 Champions League draw with Valencia on Tuesday night with a tight hamstring, but Ferguson revealed that was more a precautionary measure and he hopes the England skipper will partner Nemanja Vidic in the backline on Monday.

Scholes looks to have overcome the groin injury he suffered against Rangers in Europe a fortnight ago, while left-back Evra has recovered well from the injury which kept him out of the Valencia game, and he will almost certainly replace Fabio.
