Goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar, Nemanja Vidic and Paul Scholes are in line to return after sitting out the third-round match.

Former Barcelona and Celtic striker Henrik Larsson is pushing to retain his place in the team after arriving on loan from Helsingborg. Louis Saha could also come into contention after suffering a groin injury two weeks ago.

Midfielder Stiliyan Petrov is being rested to allow him to recover completely from his recent hamstring problem and his place is likely to be taken by Steven Davis.
But striker Chris Sutton is still sidelined after showing no improvement in his eye problem and midfielder Craig Gardnerís groin injury is taking longer to heal than expected.
