Premier League: Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney back for Manchester United
Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie could return for Manchester United's encounter with Cardiff after training on Monday.

Rooney has been missing with a groin strain since the New Year's Day defeat by Tottenham, whilst Van Persie suffered a thigh problem in the UEFA Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk last month.
However, both are in contention to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men on Tuesday night, along with £37.1million new-boy Juan Mata, who is set to make his debut.
"They have all trained today," said United boss David Moyes, who could also have midfielder Marouane Fellaini back after wrist surgery.
Meanwhile, the United boss has dismissed rumours of a big-money bid for teenage sensation Adnan Januzaj from Paris St-Germain.
"I think you have been listening to too much speculation," said Moyes to a question about Januzaj's future.
"Adnan is very much part of what we are doing and it will continue to be that way."
And Moyes side-stepped questions over the future of Rooney, whose contract expires in 2015 but has been linked with a massive extension, that could net him £300,000 a week.
"It is one I have left with (executive vice-chairman) Ed Woodward and Wayne and his advisors," said Moyes.
"We will give you an update on it at the right time. Right now I would prefer to talk about his performances."
Moyes might find himself in rather a strange situation on Tuesday given the reception for the opposing manager is going to be far more enthusiastic than his own given the depth of feeling for Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
Yet the Scot feels such accolades are only to be expected.
"He deserves it because of what he has done here," said Moyes. "He won the Champions League and was a great ambassador for Manchester United."
