Manchester United boss David Moyes isn't thinking of resting star man Wayne Rooney.

While Moyes accepts it will be hard to keep up such a level of performance indefinitely, there is no need to take Rooney out of the firing line.

"There will be times when we do have to try and look after him," Moyes said.

"At the moment he doesn't need it. I look for any signs of a dip. If I saw them, I would probably look to do so. It doesn't need to be just now. A lot of other clubs are playing their players continuously.

"We can rotate but I will wait. If it doesn't come around and I don't need to, I won't do it.'

Moyes' predecessor, Sir Alex Ferguson, was of the opinion that Rooney needed to keep playing matches to maintain his condition.

It is a view Moyes shares.

"He is a boy who continually gets better in the games he plays," said the Scot. "The point I am making is that I want to keep him playing as well as he is doing.

"If he keeps doing it I don't need to worry."
