Rooney in Man Utd squad for Benfica clash despite missing training

Wayne Rooney has been included in Manchester United's squad for their Champions League tie with Benfica.

Rooney missed the open training session in front of the media yesterday, sparking injury concerns.

The England striker missed the session with a knock - but he is expected to be fit for selection for Tuesday's Old Trafford Group C fixture.

Jonny Evans should also be available despite a tight hamstring, although fellow defender Chris Smalling (foot) will not be available and striker Danny Welbeck (muscle strain) remains doubtful.

Manchester United (from): De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Fabio, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Nani, Valencia, Gibson, Anderson, Carrick, Fletcher, Park, Giggs, Young, Rooney, Hernandez, Berbatov.
