Manchester United have received a boost ahead of tomorrow night's Champions League clash with Bayer Leverkusen as trio of stars Phil Jones, Nemanja Vidic and Darren Fletcher have all trained with the rest of the squad, reports the Manchester Evening News. 

The Red Devils, who can secure qualification to the knockout stages of the competition with a win in Germany, will be desperate to bounce back after a disappointing 2-2 draw with Cardiff City this past weekend. 

At the Cardiff City Stadium this past weekend, Manchester United boss David Moyes had a number of injury problems, however he will now be boosted with three of his stars all taking part in training. 

The Red Devils boss will hope captain Nemanja Vidic will be fit against Leverkusen after suffering with concussion against Arsenal a fortnight ago. And the United boss will also hope to have Phil Jones available as United are without the injured Michael Carrick and suspended Marouane Fellaini for the Group A clash. 

Despite Manchester United weak in the middle of the park, it's extremely unlikely Darren Fletcher will feature for the Red Devils as he's yet to play for the first-team this year after suffering from illness. 

If Shakhtar Donetsk pick up a result against Spanish outfit Real Sociedad tomorrow evening, Manchester United will be well aware that anything but a win in Germany will mean they will have to pick up a result in their final group game to ensure qualification to the Round of 16.
