Rooney ready to face West Ham after injury lay-off

WAYNE ROONEY is set to return to the Manchester United starting line-up for tomorrow's FA Cup third-round replay with West Ham at Old Trafford.

Rooney has recovered from the knee injury he suffered in training on Christmas Day and is likely to be among a number of changes for the Red Devils.

Winger Nani is fit again after spending two months out with a hamstring problem but Ashley Young (knee) and Johnny Evans (hamstring) both miss out.
