Robin van Persie has a slim chance of playing against QPR on Saturday after Louis van Gaal revealed the Manchester United striker only suffered a "minor" ankle injury against Southampton last weekend.

If Van Persie is ruled out, either Radamel Falcao or James Wilson is likely to come into the starting XI.

Defenders Rafael (cheekbone) and Marcos Rojo (thigh) are in contention after recovering from their respective injuries but wing-back Ashley Young is unavailable because of a hamstring problem.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Valdes, Vermijl, Blackett, Shaw, Smalling, Evans, Rojo, Jones, McNair, Rafael, Pereira, Blind, Fellaini, Fletcher, Herrera, Valencia, Lingard, Anderson, Carrick, Powell, Januzaj, Di Maria, Mata, Falcao, Rooney, Van Persie, Wilson, W Keane.
