Strikers Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney were both forced to withdraw from international duty through injury but their doing so was just a precaution and both should be fit for this weekend.
Javier Hernandez could start having come off the bench at half-time to make the vital impact at Villa in place of Ashley Young.
Elsewhere Jonny Evans, who remains a doubt, and Tom Cleverley will hope to return, though the latter will play for England on Wednesday and may be rested.
Ferguson's main problem may well be how to solve fitting all of his in form attacking players into the same team at once, and while Norwich will set up with two flat banks of four, United may look to cause an imbalance towards their right.
It's fair to say The Canaries caused real problems for United in both fixtures last season, with Fergie's men needing an injury time goal from Ryan Giggs to secure victory at Carrow Road.
Norwich have conceded just once in their last 4 matches but up against The Red Devils' current strikeforce it would be a miracle if they kept another clean sheet. Instead, a reasonably comfortable away win is likely.
