Javier Hernandez will be back in training on Wednesday, according to the Manchester United striker's agent.

The Mexican was injured following a late challenge by Ashley Cole in Sunday's 3-1 defeat of Chelsea. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson's immediate reaction was to rule Hernandez out for two weeks but there were fears the striker could be sidelined for much longer, however - after sending the £7million buy for scans on Monday - his agent said Hernandez has suffered nothing worse than a "bump".

"Nothing, it's just a bump, nothing more," said Eduardo Hernandez. "It looked like (his absence) was longer, they were looking for a fracture, that's why they ran those tests on him. I expect him to be training without incident on Wednesday."

With fears of a long absence allayed, record signing Dimitar Berbatov is now expected to make his first start of the season at Elland Road.

The Bulgarian secured a share of the Premier League's Golden Boot with Carlos Tevez last term but, thus far, has been restricted to just two substitute appearances, the latest as Hernandez's replacement at the weekend.
