David Moyes will assess the fitness of top goalscorer Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie before finalising his starting line-up for the League Cup semi-final clash with Sunderland today.

Rooney (groin) and Van Perise (thigh) have missed four and 10 matches respectively, but were due to return to training on Monday.

Moyes will have to decide whether the duo will be involved in the return leg fixture or not, however; the daily Express confirms Moyes and Van Persie met at United’s Carrington training ground to clear the air after club physios told the Scot the player was ready to play.

According to the newspaper, the Dutch striker is wary of returning to action prematurely, having had another injury prone campaign, so far in the ongoing season.

But Moyes has been given an all-clear by the medical staff to play the 30-year-old ahead of Wednesday night’s game against Sunderland.
