@Normal:Manchester United's captain Wayne Rooney gets in a shot despite the challenge of Chelsea's Gary Cahill, during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge stadium in London on February 7. The game ended 1-1.


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Wayne Rooney "should play more minutes" against Aston Villa today as the striker returns from injury.

Rooney has been out since mid-February with a knee injury. He made his return on Wednesday, playing the final four minutes in Man United's FA Cup win over West Ham.

Van Gaal also said Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger would likely be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
