Red alert! Rooney and Van Persie train ahead of Cardiff

Moyes could field star strikers as well as new boy Mata

David Moyes has confirmed Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie trained on Monday morning and could return for Manchester United’s Barclays Premier League encounter with Cardiff at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Rooney has been missing with a groin strain since the New Year’s Day defeat by Tottenham, while Van Persie suffered a thigh problem in the Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk last month.

However, both are in contention to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, along with £37.1million new-boy Juan Mata, who is set to make his debut.

‘They have all trained today (Monday),’ said Moyes.
