Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has warned his returning senior players they must prove they're worthy of a place in his team.
Some of them are available to return against West Brom on Monday night, though Rooney is still serving a three-match ban, but van Gaal is offering no guarantees.
"Nobody is walking back in my team, believe me," said the Dutchman. "You have to earn it on the training ground and every player knows that.
"I have always said it's not automatically players with the biggest names who are the best. I am looking for a consistent level."
