Rooney to start for Man Utd at Northampton

Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney will face EFL Cup opponents Northampton tonight.

The Sun says he is in line to start as Manchester United's main striker against Northampton tonight.

Boss Jose Mourinho could rest Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Sixfields and put Rooney up front against the League One side.

Several big-name United players will be left out but Rooney is not one of them.

United face champions Leicester at Old Trafford on Saturday and the decision to play Rooney against the Cobblers turns up the heat on the England man.
