David Moyes admits Wayne Rooney “a
good chance of starting” for
Manchester United when they play
Chelsea at Old Trafford on Monday,
live on Sky Sports 1.
The England forward was introduced
as a substitute in last week’s win at
Swansea and, after a further week’s
training, looks certain to face the
club who have already had two bids
for him turned down.
Rafael (hamstring) is out for up to
four weeks, with Nani (groin), Ashley
Young (ankle) and Javier Hernandez
(hamstring) also not expected to be
Chelsea defender David Luiz is
doubtful for the trip to United as Jose
Mourinho bids to strike an early blow
in the title race.
Brazilian centre-back Luiz has a
hamstring problem and missed the
first two Premier League fixtures of
the season, against Hull and Aston
Villa, but could return at Old Trafford
or for next Friday’s UEFA Super Cup
clash with Bayern Munich in Prague.
Mourinho could rotate his options,
with Romelu Lukaku in line to start
up front. Defender Tomas Kalas
suffered a fractured leg in pre-season
and is out.
