United's squad has been crippled by injuries this season, with currently nine players out injured.
Fellaini returned to full training this week, and now has a chance to feature in the fixture at Old Trafford this weekend.
The Belgian midfielder's United career has failed to ignite since his £27m move from Everton in September 2013, with the player still looking for that elusive first goal for the club.
He was linked with a transfer away from United during the summer, with Serie A side Napoli interested.
Fellaini, however, recently confirmed his decision to stay and fight for his place at United.
