Wayne Rooney will travel to Goodison Park for Saturday's Premier Leauge clash with Everton but it's not certain that he will play.
Rooney's been training well during the last week but he is understandably short of match fitness, having been out since August 12, the opening fixture against Reading.
His recovery was fantastically short but it's unsure whether Fergie will risk him.
'Rooney has trained very well,' the boss said.
'He'll travel with us to Goodison, but whether I start him, put him on the bench or leave him out until Wednesday, that's something I have to decide.'
Louis Saha will start after his 45-minute cameo against Sunderland earned a win for United but Owen Hargreaves, still struggling with his knee, is not certain to feature - and not even very likely.
'There's not a lot wrong with Owen,' Fergie explained. 'He trained well today. But I don't know whether we'll risk that against Everton. It's more likely he'll play in Lisbon on Wednesday.'
Gary Neville is still a couple of reserve games away from a return so Wes Brown will continue to deputise at right-back. John O'Shea and Darren Fletcher picked up injuries on international duty, therefore they are out.
As for Everton, James McFadden is not considered a regular but after his vital goal against France we might expect that he will be included. Yakubu, one of our Middlesbrough nightmares, is now at Everton and promised he would do his utmost to score against United - and I can't pretend I'm not worried though Ferdinand and Vidic are in good form, it seems.
Yet it seems that everyone is aware at the club that we can expect one hell of a game.
'The rest of the lads have all said that Everton away is a tough game, especially with the way they play,' Hargreaves told Red View.
'They've signed some good players recently. Until they signed Yakubu they played mainly with just Andy Johnson up front, but with this being a home game they'll probably play two up. Yakubu has a great physical presence and he's been a good goalscorer in the past.'
