Yes, it's true, but they might just hold off training. I remember a while back someone said they only do light training during Christmas period. With 4 days of light training, he should be just about okay. Carrick needs games anyway so he isn't a major issue. If Rooney doesn't play, it's important Welbeck starts.judging by the efforts of TC, Carrick and TC, i'm not certain they will have recovered for this game, the 3 of them looked like they had nothing in the tank.
