Man Utd ace Rooney OUT of Liverpool clash

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is set to miss today's clash at Liverpool after a training ground mishap. The Sunday Mirror says Rooney has had 10 stitches inserted in a horror head injury that will sideline him for both Manchester United and England this week.

He suffered the sickening gash to his forehead after an ­accidental collision with team-mate Phil Jones during the champions' final preparations for today's clash with Liverpool.

The striker is now out of United's Anfield ­showdown and looks ­certain to miss England's ­crucial World Cup games against Moldova and Ukraine.

The Old Trafford's medical team have ­already contacted the FA to inform them that the head wound is serious enough to sideline the 27-year-old striker for England's forthcoming World Cup double header.
