Rooney was reportedly ruled out of the game by Manchester United with an infection, but has taken up a place on the bench after he apparently  recovered from the sinus problem.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have recalled top striker Robin van Persie to the starting team after starting on the bench in the FA Cup 2-1 win over Reading last week.

He  will be joined by Javier Hernandez in the attack, while Ryan Giggs, Michael Carrick, Nani and Ashley Young all start as well.

Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic head up the center-back positions, while Jonny Evans, Antonio Valencia and Tom Cleverley are amongst the subs.

Manchester United can go 15 points clear at the top of the EPL standings with a win at Loftus Road Stadium.
