Coloccini has made just three appearances this season and returned from a hamstring injury picked up on Argentina duty in last week's Capital One Cup defeat by the Red Devils.
He subsequently sat out Saturday's 2-2 draw at Reading, while fellow centre-half Taylor suffered a hamstring injury early in the second half at the Madejski Stadium.
Alan Pardew: "We have been solid defensively and that was the first game we have been got at, mainly because of taking a centre-half off at that time.
"Going from right-back to centre-half is a difficult mode and he (Perch) just got caught out.
"He has been brilliant when he has played there, I have no worries about him.
"Colo isn't far away. I think for Manchester United we'll be sweating on Colo and Steven."
