Manchester United boss David Moyes won't risk Wayne Rooney nor Robin van Persie against Sunderland tonight.

The Daily Mail says neither Rooney or his strike partner Van Persie trained as expected yesterday.

It is understood that Van Persie has been held back while Rooney's groin is only giving him a 50-50 chance of playing in the Barclays Premier League game against Cardiff next Tuesday. Neither player will feature in the Capital One Cup against Sunderland.
