Ryan Giggs is expected to return to United's squad for the game against the Baggies.

Giggs missed two games with a minor hamstring strain but has now recovered and should be involved as United bid to resurrect their title aspirations.

It is also anticipated Wayne Rooney will be recalled, with Sir Alex Ferguson opting not to comment directly over the striker's claim he has not been suffering from an ankle injury, which was cited as the reason for his omission against Valencia and Sunderland.

West Brom could be without Premier League player of the month Peter Odemwingie at the Theatre of Dreams.

Striker Odemwingie is struggling to recover from a knee strain, sustained during the Baggies' 1-1 draw against Bolton.

Midfielder Jerome Thomas is also a doubt, having missed the Bolton match with a calf injury. Head coach Roberto Di Matteo reported that all of his players involved in international matches have returned unscathed.

Man United (from): Van der Sar, Kuszczak, O'Shea, Brown, Rafael, Neville, Ferdinand, Vidic, Smalling, Evans, Evra, Fabio, Nani, Obertan, Scholes, Fletcher, Carrick, Gibson, Anderson, Park, Giggs, Rooney, Berbatov, Owen, Macheda, Hernandez.

West Brom (from): Carson, Olsson, Ibanez, Morrison, Barnes, Bednar, Brunt, Reid, Myhill, Fortune, Dorrans, Shorey, Thomas, Mulumbu, Zuiverloon, Meite, Odemwingie, Fortune, Tchoyi, Scharner, Tamas, Cox, Downing, Sawyers, Jara, Allsop, Kiely.
