Manchester United strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie will both be unavailable through injury for Sunday’s match against Chelsea, according to Sky Sports.

Both players have been struggling with injuries and United had sent Rooney away for warm weather training in a race to get him fit for the match up.


“Wayne's come back fresh but not ready for Chelsea,” said Manchester United manager David Moyes. “He's doing some running and looking good. He's had a break, done some strengthening work on his groin. Hopefully he'll benefit, but not for this game.”


The Dutchman has also been out, only playing twice for the Red Devils since November 10, and will not return to training until next week. Despite the thigh injury keeping out the 30-year-old he has publicly stood behind his manager this week following three January defeats.


Moyes said: “I'm hoping Robin's got a good chance of training at the start of next week. If I could get him back on the grass it would be a great boost for us - he's a really important player and one we've missed.


“Both of them are getting closer to fitness, so let's hope it's not too long until we get him back.”


United will go into the match with Chelsea 11 points off the top of the table.
