Manchester United team news: Louis van Gaal given triple striker boost

By North-west correspondent Alex Stevens

Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Mourane Fellaini all took part in training on Tuesday morning in a triple boost for Manchester United.

The forward trio, who all missed the 2-1 win at Watford on Saturday, were involved in the session at the club’s training headquarters, which was open to the media.

However, Ander Herrera, Phil Jones and Michael Carrick did not take part and are set to be sidelined for Wednesday night’s Champions League clash against PSV Eindhoven.

Victory at Old Trafford against the Dutch visitors will secure qualification for the Champions League knock-out stages.
Football Insider had revealed early on Tuesday morning that Rooney was set to return for United after he missed the Watford win through illness.
Van Gaal turned to Memphis Depay to spearhead the United line against Watford and the winger-turned-striker responded with the visitors’ first goal in a 2-1 win.
Teenager Marcus Rashford, just 18, was also fast-tracked into the senior set-up on Saturday and was named on the bench for the first time.

But Van Gaal now has far more options as he prepares for a week in which United attempt to seal Champions League qualification before turning their attention to Saturday’s top-of-the-table Premier League clash against leaders Leicester.
