12:09 pm on 5 May 2009

There's been good news for both Manchester United and Arsenal on the eve of their European Champions League football decider in London.

Manchester United's defender and captain Rio Ferdinand has returned to training after suffering rib damage and a bruised lung at Old Trafford last week.

And Arsenal's Dutch striker Robin van Persie has returned to the Gunners' squad having recovered from a groin strain which has kept him on the sidelines for nearly three weeks.

Manchester United won last week's semi-final first leg match 1-0.
