Manchester United are likely to welcome back captain Wayne Rooney from suspension for their visit to Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday, hoping the striker can add to his record scoring tally in the derby.
After completing his three-match suspension, Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is now battling an injury to be fit for Sunday's Manchester derby. The striker limped off with a foot injury in training on Monday.
Wayne Rooney struck with a 74th-minute free kick to give England a 1-0 win over 10-man Estonia in a Euro 2016 Group E qualifier on Sunday and move to within six goals of Bobby Charlton`s record tally of 49.
Wayne Rooney scored his 43rd international goal as England beat Estonia 1-0 to preserve their perfect Euro 2016 qualifying record on Sunday while Chelsea striker Diego Costa finally opened his Spain account.
England duly beat San Marino 5-0 to maintain their perfect start to their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign but laboured for long periods against the joint-worst team in the world at a half-full Wembley on Thursday.
Manchester United's traditional rivals include Manchester City, Liverpool and Leeds United. However, the fixture against Everton has gained an edge over the years. For almost a decade, the two sides were managed by fiery Scots in Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes, which resulted in great banter and camaraderie between the duo.
Manchester United, who spent 150 million pounds ($245.18 million) on new players in the summer, might need to spend another 100 million pounds before they can compete for the Premier League title, according to former defender Phil Neville.
