Captain Wayne Rooney has been given the all clear ahead of Monday’s crucial tie against Ronald Koeman’s high achieving Southhampton,according to reports.
Rooney’s injury came at a awkward time as the forward was just starting to find form and United fans will be hoping the momentum has not been halted as they look for a fifth consecutive team.
Rooney suffered the injury towards the end of the Hull City match when he clashed into the electronic boards after a tussle with Andrew Robertson and consequently missed the victory against Stoke. Louis van Gaal commented that he did not thing Rooney’s injury was heavy but that a scan would be done.
Rooney is likely to come in for James Wilson who struggled in the first half on Tuesday night. Southampton have been having a terrific season thus and and lie one spot above United in 3rd,despite losing two consecutive games against Manchester City and Arsenal respectively.
