Fergie: Rooney and Hernandez back

Sir Alex Ferguson expects forwards Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez to return from injury for Manchester United against Norwich at the weekend.

• Welbeck wants to keep place

Rooney was a surprise absentee from United's draw with Stoke last weekend after sustaining a hamstring injury in training, while Hernandez picked up a dead leg at the Britannia Stadium.

Ferguson initially claimed Rooney could be sidelined for weeks, but the forward seems set to return after missing the midweek draw with Basel in the Champions League.

"Wayne and Hernandez should be fit for tomorrow," Ferguson said. "They've been training very well so I'm pleased. We'll hopefully have Jonny Evans back too."

Defensive reinforcements should also be available after the upcoming international break, a welcome boost for Ferguson after some sloppy performances in Tuesday's 3-3 draw against Basel at Old Trafford.

He said: "At the moment we're making too many changes in the back four so hopefully his [Evans] return will help us with the defensive part. [Nemanja] Vidic, [Tom] Cleverley and [Chris] Smalling should be ready after the internationals and available for Liverpool.

"There's been talk of underestimating our opponents [Basel] - I think there's an element of truth to that. But we have to be better defensively."
