Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney and Phil Jones are both set to miss their side's final game of the season against Southampton.

Red Devils interim manager Ryan Giggs confirmed on Friday morning that Jones was definitely out of their clash against Southampton on Sunday due to the shoulder injury he sustained against Hull City.

Reports had suggested that Jones could miss this summer's World Cup, however Giggs has played down those claims by suggesting his injury is not as bad as first feared.

Rooney, on the other hand, returned to training this week but has still not full recovered from a groin injury.

The 28-year-old will also be fit to participate in England's quest to win their first World Cup since 1966.

Manchester United's next rising prodigy - James Wilson - could keep his place in Giggs' starting line-up due to Rooney's absence.

Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra could return to the side after missing Manchester United's last home match of the season - while Nemanja Vidic is expected to start in what will be his final appearance for the Red Devils.

Manchester United predicted line-up: De Gea; Smalling, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra; Mata, Carrick, Fletcher, Januzaj; Wilson, Van Persie.

Who do you think Giggs will start in his final match as Manchester United's interim manager? Comment in the box below.
