Wayne Rooney will be unavailable for Manchester United’s weekend Premier League clash against Everton after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against West Ham.
He started his career at Goodison Park and would have undoubtedly been relishing a return to a side where he made his debut as a 16-year-old before moving to Old Trafford in 2004.
Man United were missing Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini due to their suspensions in the 1-1 draw over West Ham earlier in the week and are now set to be without Rooney.
The Englishman talked himself into a booking following a clash with Edmilson Fernandes just moments into the second-half and will therefore be suspended for Sunday’s visit to Merseyside.
Man United need to win against Everton over the weekend if there is any hope of staying in touch with league leaders Chelsea.
He has been in spectacular form in recent times and his absence against Everton could be a big blow for Mourinho.
Rooney got off to a shaky start this season, but he’s worked hard to fight for his place back in the starting XI and hopes are he can continue to showcase his importance to the side as he’s very close to breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal-scoring record.
