Manchester United could receive a timely boost in their bid to secure a top four finish with the news that midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be fit to return for their game against Arsenal on Wednesday.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Belgian is in contention for his first appearance since the 1-0 defeat against Everton in December.

Fellaini, a £27.5 million summer arrival from the Toffees, underwent surgery on a wrist problem late last year, while his return to action was delayed after he picked up a groin complaint in training last week. The 26-year-old has made just 11 appearances in his debut season with the Red Devils

His potential return couldn't come at a better time for the Red Devils, who are rocking after their shock 2-2 draw with rock-bottom Fulham at Old Trafford yesterday.

Despite being utterly dominant David Moyes's side fell behind in the first half, before fighting back through goals from Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick.

However a late header from Darren Bent means that Manchester United are now nine points adrift of Liverpool who occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualification spot.

Now they will have the chance to bounce back straight away against an Arsenal side who were knocked off the top of the table following their 5-1 defeat against Liverpool on Saturday.

Manchester United will be without Jonny Evans for the game at the Emirates Stadium, however Phil Jones could return after suffering concussion against Stoke.
