Rooney and Felli fit

Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed both Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini are available to face old club Everton, but Robin van Persie, Rafael and Jonny Evans are still out injured.

Rooney was forced to have an injection before United's last game, the Champions League quarter-final defeat in Munich, due to a toe problem. But Moyes said both he and Fellaini, who missed the trip to Germany through injury, have trained all week. The manager also revealed Rafael remains unavailable, but Jonny Evans is making progress with his knock.

"Rooney trained great this week and has been in really good form. We're hopefully getting him back as he wasn't quite right with his toe at times. He's trained great though," explained Moyes.

"Felli didn't play against Bayern but we expect him back fit because he has trained all week. Evans is making progress but Rafa is the one player not available."

Moyes also confirmed van Persie is continuing to receive treatment in Holland.

"Robin is in Holland and improving but we always thought it would be four to six weeks," he added. "We'll have a better assessment in the next week or so. Our medical team is heading out there to see him this week to get a better feel as to exactly where he is."
