Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed Radamel Falcao and Marcos Rojo may be ready to return to action for the game against Hull City on Saturday 29 November – but Luke Shaw will miss the match.

After back-to-back victories against Crystal Palace and Arsenal, the Premier League giants host the Tigers, with United sitting in fourth place, 13 points behind leaders Chelsea.

Falcao has missed United's last four games due to a calf problem but after returning to training with the team last weekend, Van Gaal stated he may be in the 18-man squad to face Hull.

Meanwhile, the United manager also claimed Rojo may have an early return after dislocating his shoulder during the clash against Manchester City on 2 November, even though he was expected to be out for over six weeks.

"We have to wait and see until the last training session of course," Van Gaal said. "It's always difficult to say but we have good news, yes. You have to read between the lines.

"I have to train the last session and I live day by day at this moment. So maybe Falcao can come back in the 18 [matchday squad], maybe Rojo can come back in the 18. That's it I think."

However, Van Gaal has said of Shaw: "Luke sustained an ankle ligament injury but with no serious complications and he will only be out for the next few weeks because of this," after the England international left-back was withdrawn 16 minutes into the game against Arsenal with an ankle injury.

The manager confirmed Shaw has an ankle ligament injury and even though there are no serious complications, he will miss the Hull game.

Furthermore, Van Gaal has said Daley Blind is continuing rehab after the knee injury he sustained on international duty but refused to confirm how long he will be on the sidelines.

He said: "I gave him a holiday and he came back on Monday. He has to exercise and practice every day, as an injured player has to train more than the fit players."

Jonny Evans may also be ready to face Hull after making his return to action during the reserves game against Blackburn Rovers in the Lancashire Senior Cup on Tuesday 25 November.

The Northern Ireland defender suffered an injury during the 5-3 defeat against Leicester City on 21 September and has since missed the last seven Premier League games.
