Dimitar Berbatov and Aaron Lennon are back in the frame for Sunday’s Premiership cracker against Manchester United at the Lane.

Dimitar Berbatov and Aaron Lennon are back in the frame for Sunday’s Premiership cracker against Manchester United at the Lane.It’s a boost for Martin Jol following the news that skipper Ledley King faces another six to eight weeks on the sidelines with his foot injury.

Dimitar has missed two games after picking up a groin injury in the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final against Arsenal last week while Aaron was a late withdrawal from Wednesday’s second leg at the Emirates because of illness.

Jermaine Jenas is expected to recover from an ankle knock but Teemu Tainio remains out - he’s been hit by a throat infection. Mido is suspended.

Martin reported on Friday: “Dimitar Berbatov and Aaron Lennon are back in full training, so that’s very good news.

“JJ is having a scan but I think he will be fine and Teemu has a throat infection, so that means he’s unlikely to play on Sunday but he has recovered from his foot sprain.

“Of course, Ledley will be out, that will take another six to eight weeks and that’s a blow.”
