Manchester United get much-needed injury boost ahead of FC Rostov clash

Manchester United’s terrible form against Chelsea continued last night, with Jose Mourinho’s new team losing 1-0 to his former employers. That now just leaves us competing on two fronts, and next up is a game in the Europa League against FC Rostov.

The Russian side managed to steal a 1-1 draw against us last time out, in a game that really wasn’t an exciting affair due to the state of the pitch.

However, ahead of the second leg, we’ve been given a much-needed injury boost. Mark Ogden of ESPN states that club captain Wayne Rooney is likely to be fit for the clash which is great news given the injury mess we were in on Monday night.

Our 31-year-old striker missed the Chelsea game after clashing with Phil Jones in training, but thankfully the injury couldn’t have been that serious if Rooney is already in contention to return back to the side.

After Marcus Rashford played last night, it seems like the only forward we’ll be missing is Anthony Martial, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic will obviously be available as his three-game ban doesn’t apply to European competition.

This match is a must win all of the sudden. It won’t be easy, but you’d hope that a Jose Mourinho team will be able to overcome FC Rostov.
