Rooney-Van Persie Return A Bluff?

Last updated : 21 January 2014 By Tott Dixon - Seaham

David Moyes: "Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney are set to return to training.

"They couldreturn to the fold today (Tuesday) and make the semi-final."

Vidic will miss the game, however, after he was sent off for a bad challenge on Eden Hazard.

Rafael was guilty of an even worse two-footed challenge on Cahill moments later, although the full-back connected with the ball rather than the player.

Moyes: “I thought Vidic wasn’t a sending-off, but I’ve seen Rafa’s and I think that could have been a sending off.

“We won’t throw the towel in until we can’t get there.

“The job is to try and finish first. I will keep trying to do that.

“Before today we’d lost one in six in the league, and I didn’t think there was a big difference between the teams today, not at all.

“The difference was our defending to set-pieces. Nothing else.”
