Wayne Rooney: The striker could start against Chelsea

Wayne Rooney: The striker could start against Chelsea

Rooney completed the final half-hour of United's victory at Swansea City last weekend, setting up goals for Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck.

And with another week's training under his belt after shaking off the hamstring and shoulder injuries that prevented him from playing any part in United's pre-season campaign, and the knock he picked up at the Liberty Stadium, the 27-year-old could feature against the club who have already had two bids for him turned down.

"Wayne has recovered and has a good chance of starting," Moyes told reporters.

It would be an interesting move by the Red Devils chief bearing in mind opposite number Jose Mourinho has already suggested he will make a third offer for Rooney next week.
