Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has almost a clean bill of health for Saturday's trip to Swansea City.

The Dutch coach confirmed that Phil Jones and Robin van Persie will return for the match at the Liberty Stadium, with midfielder Michael Carrick the only player in the squad not available.

Jones was withdrawn in the early stages of the win against Burnley and missed the FA Cup clash at Preston on Monday night, as did Robin van Persie.

"They [Jones and van Persie] are fit to play," Van Gaal told the club website.

"Only Carrick is still injured. I think he shall train with the group next week. I expect that, but you never know. You’ll have to wait and see."

Reports emerged earlier this week that stated that British record signing Angel Di Maria had suffered a knee injury in training - these reports were false, however, the Argentine is fit to play in Wales.
