Rooney to miss Fulham, Van der Vaart update...

The Premier League weekend action continues today with United travelling to Craven Cottage where Fulham won three nil last season. The Red Devils have been rocked by the news that Wayne Rooney hasn't travelled to London having reported in sick on Saturday morning, the club has yet to confirm the player's absence.

Rooney is struggling to find his form and there are concerns about his lack of goals having not scored in any competition since last March against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Ferguson insists the goals will start to flow again once Rooney gets into the groove, hopefully this latest setback will be prove to be nothing to worry about.

While Rooney is a fabulous player on his day, he's been blowing hot and cold and the man in-form up front for United is Dimitar Berbatov; every cloud has a silver lining and in this instance we could see Chicharito starting in place of Rooney. Michael Owen will also come into contention for a starting place and it would come as no great surprise if the former Newcastle striker gets the nod over the young Mexican hit-man.

Meanwhile, in other news Van der Vaart has denied that he's issued a come and get me plea to Manchester United. Reports in the English media on Friday attributed quotes to the Real Madrid star which made it pretty clear the Dutchman fancied a move to Manchester United. The latest transfer speculation suggests Van der Vaart could be among four players who are surplus to requirements following the appointment of Jose Mourinho and reports in Spain claim the Netherlands international won't be moving to another Spanish club.
