David Moyes is hopeful that Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Rafael could return from injury in time to face Olympiacos in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The defensive trio all sat out Saturday’s 2-0 win at Crystal Palace but Moyes revealed that they would be assessed ahead of the Red Devils’ trip to Greece.

“We’ve got a few injuries but I’m hoping we might get a few of them back for Tuesday,” said Moyes.

“We’ll get a chance to see how Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Rafael are on Sunday and see if they can join us.

“We’ve got a tough European game coming up on Tuesday now. I wanted to win [at Palace] so we could go into it in form and with confidence. It’s such a big game for us.

“We hadn’t played for 10 days before Saturday, so I wanted to make sure all the players were ready and will be ready to perform again on Tuesday.”
