Manchester United duo Robin van Persie and Marouane Fellaini have handed Red Devils boss David Moyes a major boost by returning to first-team training.

Both Fellaini and Van Persie missed Manchester United's festive fixtures due to injury but have now recovered from their respective knocks.

Fellaini's last game for Manchester United came against his former side Everton on December 4.

The 26-year-old midfielder was ruled out for six weeks shortly after United's defeat against the Toffees as the Belgium international needed surgery on his wrist.

It was originally thought that Fellaini would be out for six weeks, however Manchester United's £27million summer signing has recovered quicker than expected.

Van Persie on the other hand injured his thigh while taking a corner against Shakhtar Donetsk on December 10 and has been missing ever since.

Fellaini is ineligible to play in tonight's match against Sunderland in the Capital One Cup as he is cup-tied, while Van Persie is likely to be saved for Manchester United's Premier League clash against Cardiff City next Tuesday.
