Young and Januzaj are expected to be in the squad for the Old Trafford clash after proving their fitness in a reserve team run-out over Easter and Louis van Gaal wants Rooney to do the same before he can be considered for selection.

Van Gaal confirmed Bastian Schweinsteiger’s injury is the same as Rooney’s and likely to keep him out for several weeks while Luke Shaw is back in training and could yet feature before the end of the campaign.

The German is the only new casualty from the latest round of international fixtures so van Gaal could name an unchanged side from the one that won the Manchester derby 12 days ago when United face the Merseysiders on Sunday.
