Football: Rooney braced for Manchester United start against Chelsea
MANCHESTER, United Kingdom (AFP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed that Wayne Rooney could start Monday's Premier League showdown with Chelsea despite being regularly linked with a move to the London club.
Rooney, who has been the subject of two failed bids from Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, has been suffering from hamstring and shoulder injuries.
But the 27-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in last weekend's opening win at Swansea, setting up goals for Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck.
"Wayne has recovered and has a good chance of starting," Moyes said.
