One man who is on the brink of a first team return is fullback Luke Shaw while Marcos Rojo is still a couple of months away according to Mourinho.
Everton manager Ronald Koeman has also spoke out about the return of Rooney.

James McCarthy is a doubt due to a knee injury. No goals scored, eight conceded.
