Wayne Rooney is winning his battle to be fit for Manchester United's visit to face Chelsea this weekend.

The Old Trafford striker has been resting his injured groin in Egypt for the last few days on a family holiday.

Boss David Moyes had always planned to give his talisman a break, with little time to take him out of the firing line over the busy Christmas period.

And United proved they could cope without the England forward when they got back to winning ways with a morale-boosting 2-0 victory over Swansea City at the weekend.

The return of Rooney, however, will provide the Red Devils with a further booster for the Stamford Bridge test, which can be backed at 11.00 to be a goalless draw.

United physios have been in daily contact with Moyes and informed him on Sunday that the player is performing well in a series of strength tests.

Rooney is expected to return to Manchester in the next 48 hours but United, 2.87 to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, are confident the player is ready to lead the line again, with Robin van Persie still sidelined (thigh).
