Manchester United striker Louis Saha is set to make his long-awaited return to action against Sunderland at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Saha has not played since sustaining a knee injury against AC Milan in the Champions League last April but the Frenchman has been included in the squad to face Roy Keane’s side.

However Wayne Rooney (broken foot) and Gary Neville (thigh) are again ruled out through injury, with England striker Rooney due to have a scan on his problem next week.

Cristiano Ronaldo is suspended while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer announced his retirement this week.

Brazil international Anderson could be involved, however, after a hamstring strain.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 17.15.

United (from): Van der Sar, Kuszczak, Heaton, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, O’Shea, Evra, Silvestre, Fletcher, Eagles, Carrick, Scholes, Hargreaves, Nani, Anderson, Giggs, Saha, Tevez.
