Manchester United manager David Moyes is sweating on the fitness of Wayne Rooney ahead of Wednesday's Premier League encounter with Tottenham at Old Trafford.

Rooney is still to return to training after missing Saturday's win at Norwich with a groin injury.

Robin van Persie (thigh) and Phil Jones (knee) are unlikely to be involved as United look to extend their winning sequence to seven matches and Marouane Fellaini (wrist) is definitely out.

Tottenham's Paulinho will miss this match and the next four weeks through an ankle ligament injury.

The Brazil midfielder, making his return after a three-match ban, sustained the injury during Sunday's 3-0 defeat of Stoke.

Kyle Walker will return from suspension at Old Trafford, although Sandro (calf), Younes Kaboul (thigh), Andros Townsend (hamstring) and Jan Vertonghen (ankle) remain sidelined. Jermain Defoe (hamstring) and Danny Rose (fatigue) are doubts.
