Harry Redknapp is set to welcome back key players for Saturday's huge match at Manchester United.

Wilson Palacios is back after a two-match suspension while Jermaine Jenas, Aaron Lennon and Ledley King could all return from injury.

As we reported earlier , Harry Redknapp will wait until after training on Friday to make a decision on winger Aaron, who is back in the frame after missing all of 2010 so far with a groin problem.

"Aaron won't start, he's not ready to start again, but he could be available if we need 20 minutes or so," said Harry. "We'll wait and see."

That's also the case with Ledley, who wasn't quite ready to face Chelsea last weekend after coming through his return match against Arsenal with flying colours on April 14.

"Again, we'll wait to see how Ledley is today," said Harry. "He played against Arsenal, did a fantastic job and then Sebastien Bassong came back in for Chelsea an he did great with Michael Dawson.

"We had to chop and change a lot last week but all the lads who came in all performed for us. We look okay and hopefully they'll all be available. We've got a couple of longer-term injuries but we've almost got a full squad."

Niko Kranjcar (ankle) and Vedran Corluka (ankle) join long-term injuries Carlo Cudicini (wrist, pelvis) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) on the sidelines.
