Antonio Valencia and Tom Cleverley could play for Manchester United against Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday. Both players trained with the team on Saturday.

 'Antonio Valencia' photo (c) 2012, Saadick Dhansay - license: Valencia featuring in the match would come as a bit of a surprise after manger Sir Alex Ferguson ruled the Ecuadorian winger out for a few weeks. Valencia fit to play  would be welcome news for United who only have Ashley Young fit on the wing as Nani is also out. Cleverley injured his calf on Wednesday in United's Champions League loss to Cluj but also trained on Saturday. 

Nemanja Vidic did not take part in the training which all but confirms the Serbian defender will not play against City.
