Scholes in line for derby return

Scholes has been out of action, scine damaging knee ligaments in the Champions League victory over Aalborg in September.

The 34-year-old was expected to be out for months but is now taking part in every exercise at United’s Carrington training ground.

A United insider told the Sun: “It’s like he has never been away. He’s been absolutely flying. If he was called upon, he would certainly be fit enough to play.”
