Rooney, Fellaini set for Everton clash
Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini have both been passed fit to play for Manchester United against their former club Everton on Sunday.
Rooney was hampered by a toe injury in United’s 3-1 Champions League quarterfinal second-leg defeat at Bayern Munich on April 9, when he had a painkilling injection before playing.
But Red Devils manager David Moyes, who is preparing for his first return to Goodison Park since leaving last summer, told a news conference: “He has trained this week and has been in really good form. We're hopefully getting him back as he wasn't quite right with his toe at times. He's trained great though.”
Fellaini, meanwhile, missed the match in Munich, but is set to make his first return to Everton since completing his 27.5 million pound move to United in September.
The midfielder remains the Toffees’ record signing and is also their most lucrative sale, while he scored 32 goals in 177 games during his five years on Merseyside.
"Felli didn't play against Bayern but we expect him back fit because he has trained all week," Moyes said.
However, United will be without right-back Rafael da Silva, who is still sidelined by a thigh injury, although centre-back Jonny Evans, who has not featured for the first team since the start of February, could make his comeback.
"Evans is making progress but Rafa is the one player not available," Moyes added.
United will still be without striker Robin van Persie, who remains in Netherlands, where he is undergoing rehabilitation on a knee problem.
Moyes said: “Robin [van Persie] is in Holland and making improvements, but we always thought it would be four to six weeks.
“We'll have a better assessment in the next week or so as we'll see how he is coming along. Our medical team is heading out there to see him this week and get a better feel as to exactly where he is.”
