Rooney set to play despite absence

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney should figure for Manchester United in Tuesday's Champions League match against Benfica.

The England striker missed training on Monday with a knock - but he is expected to be fit for selection for the Group C fixture at Old Trafford.

Jonny Evans should also be available despite a tight hamstring, although fellow defender Chris Smalling (foot) will not be available and striker Danny Welbeck (muscle strain) remains doubtful.
