The midfielder is available again after suffering a calf injury against Liverpool in December.
That has kept him out of our last 14 matches in all competitions but the fans' favourite returns as we look to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the second leg of our Europa League, Round of 32 tie.
However, Etienne Capoue (ankle) and Danny Rose (knee) are sidelined after picking up injuries in Sunday’s loss at Norwich City.
Kyle Walker (hip), Younes Kaboul (calf), Gylfi Sigurdsson (thigh), Erik Lamela and Vlad Chiriches (both back) remain sidelined.
Tim reported: “Kyle and Gylfi aren’t fit for this one, but they are on their way back. It won’t be long before they are fit.
“Younes has a calf strain. We’re hopeful that he might be back in contention for the weekend (Cardiff on Sunday), but tomorrow is too soon for him."
