​Rooney on Man Utd bench for weekend Premier League clash

Wayne Rooney will not be recalled to the Manchester United starting line-up for Sunday's Premier League home clash with Stoke City.

Sky Sports understand the United captain will start Thursday's Europa League tie against Ukrainians Zorya Luhansk at Old Trafford before returning to the substitutes' bench at the weekend.

United boss Jose Mourinho dropped Rooney for Saturday's visit of Leicester City and watched his team hammer the reigning champions 4-1.
