Manchester United have suffered from more injuries than any other club in the league this season, particularly in defence.

Players don't get injured on purpose. There have been injuries with the odd hamstring or groin, there have been quite a few of those, but Rojo dislocated his shoulder and I had a fracture in my foot.

Wayne Rooney has given a short interview with the official site where he talks about training at Manchester United.

Who would you play alongside in your ideal five-a-side team?

Manchester United picked up their first away win of the season with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates.

After a cagey first period, Kieran Gibbs turned Antonio Valencia's sharply struck cross into his own net just after half time to give United something to hang onto. A solid and gritty defensive performance laid the foundations for Wayne Rooney to run through unchallenged and make it two from Angel Di Maria's pass, before substitute Olivier Giroud scored a late consolation for the Gunners.

With an hour left to play yesterday, Arsenal should have gone down to 10 men after Jack Wilshere tried to headbutt Marouane Fellaini.

Standing at just 5 foot 7, Wilshere's forehead could only reach Fellaini's chest, but obviously the height difference between players isn't mention in FIFA's laws of the game when giving criteria for red cards.

Thankfully we got the win regardless, but how did Jack Wilshere not get sent off for telling the referee to "f**k off" then trying to headbutt Marouane Fellaini?!

Hugo Borst, a Dutch journalist who used to be a good friend of Louis van Gaal before a falling out, has recently published a biography on the Manchester United manager.
