"Things are looking up and players are starting to come back," Fergie told the club's official website.
"Patrice may have a chance for Saturday against Everton. If the game had still been on Monday, I'd say he'll definitely play. But he has still got a chance of making it.
"Nani should also be fit for Saturday.
"The ones still unavailable are Jonny Evans, Rafael and Fabio da Silva and Anderson."
