Wayne Rooney is a doubt for Manchester United's trip to Norwich with an ankle injury, manager Alex Ferguson revealed yesterday.

Meanwhile, Jonny Evans could be missing in defence due to a groin problem that saw him miss Northern Ireland’s World Cup qualifier against Azerbaijan.

Ferguson said: “We’ve still got some doubts about Wayne and Jonny Evans. I think Robin (Van Persie) should be fit. We’ll see what they are like today but there is a doubt. Phil Jones has been training all week. We will take him to Turkey (to play Galatasaray in the Champions League) with us. Chicarito should start tomorrow.”
