MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes says Wayne Rooney will miss Sunday's Premier League match against Chelsea because of injury.

Rooney was allowed to take a warm-weather break in Egypt to recover from a groin problem, but the England striker is still not fit enough to play.

Moyes says "we hope we can get him back as soon as we can, but we don't want to put a date on it."

Robin van Persie has also been ruled out of the game with a thigh injury.

Van Persie has not played since Dec. 10, although Moyes says the Netherlands striker could return to training next week.
