Nani and Anderson both return to the Manchester United squad for Sunday's high-octane Barclays Premier League encounter with Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The pair have been sidelined for 14 and eight games respectively with hamstring injuries but are available to bolster Sir Alex Ferguson's options.

Wayne Rooney (knee) is missing though and Phil Jones is also likely to be saved for Wednesday's FA Cup replay with West Ham.

Striker Daniel Sturridge is in contention for his Premier League debut for Liverpool at Manchester United having joined from Chelsea last week.

The 23-year-old scored on his first appearance in the FA Cup win at Mansfield on Sunday and could keep his place at Old Trafford, where, the likes of the rested Steven Gerrard, Jose Reina and Glen Johnson will all return.

Forward Fabio Borini is back in the squad having been sidelined since mid-October with a broken foot.

Manchester United (from): Lindegaard, De Gea, Smalling, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evans, Buttner, Evra, Cleverley, Giggs, Fletcher, Anderson, Scholes, Carrick, Kagawa, Young, Nani, Hernandez, Welbeck, Van Persie.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Wisdom, Agger, Skrtel, Johnson, Gerrard, Lucas, Allen, Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez, Jones, Carragher, Coates, Robinson, Shelvey, Henderson, Suso, Downing, Borini.
