"He's not happy with his condition," said manager Jose Mourinho. "He has a bad feeling with his ankle."

Asked if Rooney will be fit for the visit of Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday, Mourinho added: "Let's see".

Goalkeeper David de Gea is in the squad despite missing the 3-0 Premier League win over Sunderland last Sunday, although it is expected that Sergio Romero will keep his place in the team.
