Manchester United boss David Moyes says Wayne Rooney has a "good chance" of starting Monday's Premier League match against Chelsea.
Rooney impressed as a second-half substitute in the Reds' opening day win at Swansea last weekend when he played a role in creating goals for starting frontmen Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck.
The England striker had previously played 65 minutes for his country against Scotland after a pre-season which has seen him hampered by hamstring and shoulder injuries.
Moyes confirmed Rooney had recovered from the minor knock he picked up during his run-out at the Liberty Stadium and could be a starter against Jose Mourinho's men at Old Trafford.
"Wayne's got a good chance of playing. He has a good chance of starting," the manager told reporters on Friday.
Moyes' dilemma is how to involve Rooney up front with both strikers bagging doubles at Swansea while Shinji Kagawa is also pressing for a start.
