Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson says that Nani could be back training by the end of the week.
The Portuguese forward has missed United's last three games through injury, but is set to rejoin the squad after recovering from an ankle problem.
Monday's match against Fulham may come too soon for Nani, but versatile defender Phil Jones should be available after recovering from illness.
Ferguson told United's official website: "There are no (new) problems with injuries, it's much better now.
"There was Jones getting that bout of 'flu but he's back. Jones was actually back on Friday but we didn't risk him on Sunday. He'll be available.
"So they're all training apart from Nani, who should not be far away and might start training this week, while Anderson and Michael Owen are the only other ones out.
"Nemanja Vidic and Darren Fletcher are obviously still long term."
