Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted Manchester United have an injury headache ahead of their clash against Norwich City in the Premier League this weekend.
Ferguson revealed Old Trafford star Wayne Rooney is still struggling with an ankle injury picked up against Aston Villa last week, while defender Jonny Evans’ groin problem is also a worry.
Rooney had to be substituted in the comeback win over Aston Villa, where Javier Hernandez’s hat-trick saved Manchester United’s blushes at Villa Park.
However, there was some good news for Red Devils fans as the thigh injury that kept Robin van Persie out of Holland’s friendly with Germany in midweek looks to have cleared up.
“We've still got some doubts about Wayne and Jonny Evans, I think Robin should be fit. We'll see what they are like today but there is a doubt,” he told reporters.
Not only is Van Persie making steady progress, long term absentee Phil Jones is also close to full fitness, although the game at Carrow Road has come a few days too early for his comeback.
“Phil Jones has been training all week. We will take him to Turkey [to play Galatasaray in the Champions League] with us. He’ll get part of it there, which is a good start for him,” added the Scot.
Manchester United will be looking to maintain the electric attacking form that has propelled them to the top of the Premier League table.
