Wayne Rooney is set to return for Manchester United against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Rooney has missed the last two games but has recovered from tonsillitis while Chris Smalling should also be available after picking up a shoulder injury in midweek.

"Wayne Rooney is fit," Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed. "He had tonsillitis but has been training all week, which is good.

"Jonny Evans will hopefully train today but I don't know if he will be available for tomorrow. Chris Smalling had a small shoulder injury on Tuesday night.

"I wanted to play Phil Jones anyway - at least the two of them are back because I thought Jones did very well in his first game back, which is really good news. Nani is not available yet, he's not fit yet. He's still got a little problem with his hamstring."
