PICTURE: Man Utd’s Rooney and Van Persie back in training
The duo have been sorely missed, with United struggling badly in their absence. The 3-1 defeat at Chelsea last weekend highlighted this, as their makeshift strike-force of Adnan Januzaj and Danny Welbeck unable to really test the Blues back line.
Wayne Rooney has been out since the beginning of the month with a groin problem, while Van Persie has only played one Premier League game since the start of November, having struggled with a problematic thigh injury.
Van Persie could make a return next Tuesday in the Premier League against Cardiff, while the Daily Mirror claims that Rooney will play in tonight’s League Cup semi-final second leg against Sunderland.
With four defeats from their last five games, their return to the first team fold could breath new life into United’s bid for a top four finish.
What do you think? Can the pair fire United into the top four? Let me know in the comments below…
