Arsenal Message Board
Rooney was meant to make a return from the hamstring injury that kept him out of United’s tour of Asia and Australia but is said to have picked up a shoulder injury in United’s 3-0 behind closed doors win over Real Betis on Saturday in which he scored.
David Moyes said of Rooney’s absence:
“Wayne hurt his shoulder in a fall during a match on Saturday. It’s not too serious and I don’t expect it to keep him out for too long.
“I’m disappointed he’s missing the game because we were keen to get him back involved and ready to play.”
The party that travels is missing a number of players but will also see Nani and Vidic return to action after both have been getting back to fitness whilst the first team were on tour.
The squad in full:
Lindegaard, Amos; Rafael, Evans, Evra, Jones, Smalling, Vidic; Anderson, Bebe, Carrick, Giggs, Nani, Zaha; Henriquez, Kagawa, van Persie, Welbeck.
This is actually good for Arsenal as Rooney's imminent transfer to Chelsea would get things started on the transfer front..... Luis Suarez anyone?

Indeed, but Rooney would yet have the last laugh on them when he pens his new 240k per week 5 year contract with Chelsea. Their delaying tactics is bound to fail as Rooney is hellbent on leaving hence his recent make-believe injury troubles, lol. What a sad way to repay a great player who contributed so much to their success in the last 9-10 years.
