The former Aston Villa winger has enjoyed something of a resurgence under new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal this season.
The 29-year-old England international has scored one goal and made one assist in 16 Premier League games for the Red Devils this term.
He played the full 90 minutes as United were knocked out of the FA Cup by Arsenal on Monday night but will be hoping to feature again when Van Gaal’s men host Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
United are currently fourth in the top-flight table.
