#EPL : Rooney, Shaw out of ManUnited vs Arsenal Sunday clash.

Louis van Gaal has
confirmed Luke Shaw and Wayne Rooney are both unavailable for selection ahead of Manchester United’s Barclays Premier League match against
Arsenal at Old Trafford on

Shaw took a blow to the face during the first half of last
weekend’s 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace and was replaced by Jonny Evans, before Rooney was withdrawn for Radamel Falcao at half-time after sustaining a painful
dead leg at Selhurst Park.

Robin van Persie has been declared fit to face his former
club after the Dutchman missed the trip to South London due to a virus.

Angel Di Maria is also available for action after recovering from
injury, as is his Argentinian compatriot Marcos Rojo.

During interview with MUTV, van Gaal was asked firstly about Shaw and Rooney:

"The situation is not
positive for us, they cannot play, neither of them.

"Yes, it is a short-term thing,we have only one match to
play [after Gunners], so I think it will be difficult for them to
play again this season".
