Louis van Gaal: Injury update on Wayne Rooney, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Michael Carrick


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says striker Wayne Rooney and midfielder Michael Carrick will both feature against Everton on Saturday afternoon.

The Dutchman, who didn't include midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger in the list of injured players, also confirmed that Marcos Rojo and Ander Herrera are fit and ready to feature against the Toffees.

"Wayne Rooney, I think he can play and Michael Carrick can play as well," van Gaal told MUTV.

"I was very pleased with [Phil] Jones. Yes, of course [he is fit] because he has already played for me two times for 15 or 20 minutes. Then he plays for the England team. When I want to select him I can select him for the line-up.

"They [Marcos Rojo and Ander Herrera] were injured and they have a rehabilitation period behind their back and everything went well.

"They are also fit to play – maybe not 90 minutes but you never know."
