With Christmas out of the way, Rooney will now be eyeing goals as his side are back at Old Trafford this afternoon.
Louis van Gaal's side head into the game in fine form after securing six wins from their last seven fixtures.
After being held at Villa Park in their last outing, however, United will be desperate to return to winning ways against Alan Pardew's inconsistent side
Rooney, then, looks set to start, but may once again star in the midfield department, with the likes of Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao, James Wilson and Co. all hoping for a place in the side.
With United also set to play Tottenham on Sunday, it looks set to be a busy couple of days for the club as they look to build momentum heading into the New Year.
