Wayne Rooney is back.

Louis Van Gaal confirmed the availability of Wayne Rooney for Manchester United's next game against Southampton, after recovering from the knee injury that ruled him out of the midweek victory over Stoke City.

Van Gaal also gave an update on Di Maria's injury, and said that it isn't serious.

"It's not a bad injury, but I am not a doctor. I have to say it like a manager, not like a doctor. But I think he shall recover very quickly," the United boss told MUTV.

He also gave an update on Jonny Evans and Phil Jones by saying: "Evans is coming back. He is fit to play. Jones is coming back but not fit to play. He needs training sessions and maybe also matches in the second team. But he is coming back. He is fit to train. That is also very good. We are seeing already light in the tunnel."
