Scholes set for United return
Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes will feature against Aston Villa on Sunday according to the club's manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The veteran playmaker, who came out of a brief spell of retirement in January, has been an influential figure in the Red Devils' climb to the top of the Premier League table. However the 37-year-old was rested for United's clash with Wigan Athletic in midweek, which saw the defending champions suffer their first defeat to the Latics in the Premier League. Questions have been raised on whether Scholes should have been rested for the encounter at the DW Stadium, as Manchester City closed the gap at the top of the table to five points, and you can back either team to claim the title using your free bet. Ferguson has insisted Scholes needed to rest and has revealed he will be back in the thick of it against Villa this weekend. He said: "Paul has shown his influence since he came back but I did the right thing to rest him on Wednesday. "He will be fresh on Sunday and he will play."
