Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is set to name Darren Fletcher in his 25-man Champions League squad.

Clubs have to confirm their squads to UEFA on Monday. As he is battling to overcome a chronic bowel condition, there was some doubt as to whether Fletcher would be part of Manchester United's latest European assault.

However, after another encouraging outing for United's Under-21 side against Tottenham on Wednesday night, it is looking more likely Fletcher will be able to complete a successful return to first-team duties. And with places available due to the number of home-grown players in Ferguson's squad, Fletcher is set to make the cut.
