Nani boost for United

Nani boost for United

Manchester United welcome Marseille to Old Trafford for their Champions League quarter final second leg with the aggregate level at 0-0.

Alex Ferguson has received a triple fitness boost ahead of the tie as he welcomes Michael Carrick, Michael Owen and Nani back into his squad for must win tie.

Nani was originally expected to be sidelines for a month following his injury against Liverpool last week but the Portuguese midfielder has made a quick recovery and will be involved tomorrow.

Michael Carrick was absent for the Arsenal game this past Sunday but the midfielder is now fit to return to the squad, as is Michael Owen who has been out for over a month with a groin problem.

Alex Ferguson has also been boosted by the return of midfielder Antonio Valencia and he may start his first game in over six months for United tomorrow.

Owen Hargreaves and Ji Sung Park also took part in training for United but both are not expected to be fit to return as of yet, while Rio Ferdinand remains sidelined for United as he has still not recovered from his latest set back.

Manchester United will be wary of an away goal for Marseille tomorrow night and will need to hit the ground running for this must win encounter.

Kick off on Tuesday is at 19:45
