Rooney returns for United to replace injured Ibrahimovic

Updated: 

Wayne Rooney was named in the Manchester United team to face Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday, replacing the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

An ankle injury had limited Rooney to a solitary substitute appearance since March 4, but he was selected by Jose Mourinho at centre-forward, with support from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

Ibrahimovic is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering what United described as "significant" knee ligament damage during Thursday's Europa League quarter-final win over Anderlecht.

Marcus Rashford's extra-time goal led United into the semi-finals of the competition, but the England youngster made way for Rooney at Turf Moor, and was named among the substitutes.
