Sir Alex Ferguson expects defender Phil Jones to be available for United’s encounter with Latics on Monday.

Jones did not suffer a broken cheekbone as Ferguson first feared at Fulham on Wednesday, and the bruising should have eased sufficiently for the teenager to face Roberto Martinez’s men.

However, Ashley Young (knee) is going to be out for a few weeks, joining Tom Cleverley (ankle), Michael Owen (thigh) and Anderson (knee) on the sidelines, along with long-term casualties Nemanja Vidic (knee) and Darren Fletcher (bowel condition).

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez will assess defender Steve Gohouri (flu) and striker Hugo Rodallega before deciding on his squad.

Rodallega picked up a heavy knock during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea, but played against Liverpool in midweek and he will be checked again to ensure he is suffering no after-effects.

James McCarthy is also expected to be available despite also suffering a knock against Liverpool.

Man United (from): De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Rafael, Evans, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evra, Jones, Fryers, Cole, Carrick, Valencia, Park, Gibson, Nani, Giggs, Macheda, Rooney, Welbeck, Berbatov, Hernandez, Diouf.

Wigan (from): Al Habsi, Caldwell, Alcaraz, Figueroa, Watson, Diame, Moses, Gomez, McCarthy, Di Santo, Jones, Stam, Van Aanholt, McArthur, Lopez, Thomas, Sammon, Maloney, Crusat, Gohouri, Rodallega, McCarthy, Pollitt, Kirkland.
