Young faces Toffees race
Ashley Young is a doubt for Manchester United's trip to Goodison Park with a toe injury, while the match will come too soon for Rafael.
England international Young is expected to undergo a late fitness test if he is to line up against David Moyes' side, as United look to bounce back from last week's derby defeat.
Sir Alex Ferguson was boosted by the return of Nemanja Vidic and Tom Cleverley in the midweek Carling Cup victory over Aldershot and both players are pushing for starting places on Saturday.
Rafael did return to training this week following an operation on his shoulder, but the defender isn't likely to feature in the squad just yet, with a reserve game needed before he resumes first-team action.
