Rooney could return for United

Manchester United are hopeful that striker Wayne Rooney will be fit to face Hull tomorrow night.

Rooney sat out the 1-0 defeat to Sunderland as he was struggling with a stomach bug and groin injury, but he could feature against Steve Bruce’s side.

Interim player-manager Ryan Giggs could name himself in the match day squad for the final home game of the season, but goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard (illness) and defender Rafael (thigh) are doubts.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Rafael, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Smalling, Evans, Buttner, Evra, Giggs, Carrick, Nani, Young, Fletcher, Valencia, Kagawa, Fellaini, Mata, Januzaj, Rooney, Hernandez, Welbeck, Van Persie.
