Injured Rooney left out of United squad for Chelsea trip

Updated: 

Wayne Rooney has been left out of Manchester United's squad to face Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday with an injury.

Reports emerged on Saturday suggesting the United captain would miss the match at Stamford Bridge due to a muscular issue.

While the club have not confirmed the extent of Rooney's problem, they announced he would miss the game due to an injury sustained in their previous training session.

The 30-year-old made his first United start since September 21 in Thursday's 4-1 Europa League victory over Fenerbahce having been recently consigned to the bench by manager Jose Mourinho.
