Wayne Rooney is expected to be fit for Manchester United’s clash against Arsenal on Saturday afternoon, according to Sky Sports.

The 31-year-old missed training on Sunday with the national team after suffering a discomfort in his knee and withdrew from the England squad hours before their 2-2 draw with Spain at Wembley on Tuesday.

He allegedly went for a scan at the Aspire medical facility in Watford on Monday where it was revealed he had endured a slight knee injury over the international break.

The Englishman reported to Man United’s training ground on Tuesday and was assessed by the medical staff at Carrington, where he was reportedly told he’d be fine to play against Arsene Wenger’s men.

Rooney has lost his automatic starter status for club and country in recent times and has struggled to establish himself under Jose Mourinho after a string of disappointing showings.

He has seen an upturn in form recently against Swansea City in the Premier League and in the 3-0 victory over Scotland with England, he will be hoping to keep up the impressive showings once Arsenal visit Old Trafford on November 19.
