United away to Chelsea


By Agencies

London- Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will reportedly miss his side’s Premier League clash against Chelsea on Sunday.

According to The Mirror, the 28-year-old, who has been out of action since New Year’s Day, has not recovered from his groin injury despite travelling to Egypt last week for a warm-weather training camp.
It has been reported that Rooney’s chances of playing at Stamford Bridge are 50-50.

United are currently seventh in the league table, while Chelsea are two points behind leaders Arsenal in third.“Uganda Golf Union has put up a regulation that requires every team to have at least 60% players come from the respective region. The regulation recognises the player to come from a particular region if one is born, working or living there,” clarified UGU secretary Johnson Omollo on the eligibility of players.

Each region shall field 30 golfers – five of them ladies, for the two-day event that shall be played under the medal format. But only the best 20 scores over two days will be considered for the final tally per region.

Meanwhile Darren Fletcher is adamant Manchester United have nothing to fear ahead of this Sunday’s trip to Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League.

The Reds travel to West London as underdogs following a disappointing start to the New Year, having lost three straight matches before securing a morale-boosting 2-0 win over Swansea City at Old Trafford.

In contrast, Chelsea are flying high in the title race and have claimed 25 points from a possible 30 in their last 10 matches. Notably, they have also never lost a league game at Stamford Bridge under Jose Mourinho in either his first or current second spell as their manager.
However, having navigated difficult periods in the past, Fletcher is drawing on experience and insists his team-mates are not daunted by Sunday’s match.
