Wayne Rooney: Clashed with Danny Welbeck in training

That was the verdict of Manchester United manager David Moyes after Rooney's damaged shin kept him out of Wednesday's Champions League game at Shakhtar Donetsk.

A gashed forehead kept the striker out of England's recent World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.

And his omission from United's team-sheet in Ukraine raised fears he could miss this month's key games against Poland and Montenegro.

Moyes put those concerns to bed in the aftermath of a 1-1 draw, saying: "It's not that serious. He took a clash of shins with Danny Welbeck and it's just swollen up."

Asked whether Rooney would be fit for Saturday's trip to Sunderland, the Scot said: "I hope so."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
