Rio Ferdinand will make his long-awaited return in the game. The England defender has been missing for three months with a back complaint but is expected to partner Evans in central defence as United look for the victory that would allow them to claim top spot in the Premier League. Dimitar Berbatov has shaken off a dead leg and should also return. Hull City's new loan signing Amr Zaki will not be available due to a lack of match fitness. However defender Kamil Zayatte is expected to be despite an ankle injury. The problem requires minor surgery but that is likely to take place next month. Jimmy Bullard (knee) is likely to be out until the end of the month.
