There was speculation that the Manchester United star would be unable to feature at Goodison Park against the Toffees after missing international duties with England through injury.
But Van Gaal has confirmed that Rooney is fit enough to start at the today. So its definitely a positive injury blow for the Red Devils.
Huge injury blow for Man United as Rooney is ruled fit to face Everton. Oh, and LVG wants his chef, Mike, to improve http://t.co/iLu9Da65cA
