Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young are both expected to be fit for Manchester United's Premier League encounter with Swansea City this weekend.

The English duo were both integral to Manchester United's blistering start to their Premier League defence and the midfielders have successfully negotiated their rehabilitation following the recent international break in order to be available for selection for their game against newly promoted Swansea City.

Cleverley was initially injured during Manchester United's game against Bolton Wanderers on September 10th, when a typically robust Kevin Davies challenge deprived Sir Alex Ferguson of one of his most creative players this season. The 22-year-old made his comeback against Everton at Goodison Park but suffered a reoccurrence of the ankle injury.

Young suffered a toe injury in the aforementioned game against Everton but both players have trained during the week and are likely to start the game at Swansea, when Manchester United will be looking to close the five point deficit on Manchester City.

While Young and Cleverley are available, Danny Welbeck is a doubt for the match following his recent withdrawal from the England squad that beat Sweden. He has a muscle injury and Sir Alex Ferguson may decide not to risk the increasingly impressive 20-year-old.

United have made a gradual if unspectacular response following their stunning derby defeat to Manchester City in October. Wins over Aldershot, Everton, Otelul Galati, and Sunderland have been registered without conceding a goal.

They face Swansea, Benfica, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa in their next five games.
