Manchester United manager David Moyes: ‘Both Wayne Rooney & Robin van Persie are out of Chelsea game’
The scenario United fans were fearing and Chelsea fans were anticipating in equal measure has come to pass: both Wayne Rooney AND Robin van Persie are out of Sunday’s showdown at Stamford Bridge.
Man United boss David Moyes confirmed the news with trepidation to the press today, explaining that despite Rooney returning from his warm weather break in good shape, he’s not quite ready for Sunday.
Ditto van Persie, who Mayes says he hopes will be back to training early next week.
It’s a huge blow for United, who will now be looking even more so to the in-form Danny Welbeck to perform in front of goal on Sunday…
