Manchester United have been handed a big injury boost after England manager Roy Hodgson revealed that he fully expects Wayne Rooney to be fit for this weekend’s clash with Everton.

The United skipper missed England’s 2-0 win over Estonia on Friday night and is also set to sit out the Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania on Monday due to an ankle injury.

However, Hodgson has given United fans some good news by confirming that Rooney – along with midfielder Michael Carrick – should be fit for next Saturday’s trip to Goodison Park in the Premier League.

Hodgson is quoted as saying by Metro: “From his (Carrick’s) point of view, and United’s, the rest will do him good,’ said Hodgson.

“I fully expect to see him and Wayne Rooney fit for United and Louis van Gaal next weekend.”

The news comes after Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo handed the Red Devils another injury boost by confirming that they are on their way to full fitness via a post on social media last week.

United are looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League at Goodison Park after their disappointing 3-0 loss to Arsenal left them third in the table and two points off top spot.
