Manchester United boss David Moyes is banking on the form of his fit-again strikers Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney when they face Olympiakos Piraeus in their Champions League last 16 first leg on Tuesday.
Rooney also boosted United by pledging his long-term future to the club last week, signing until June 2019 before scoring a superb goal against Palace.

“I think both Rooney and Van Persie are back in really good shape and they’re scoring goals, and in the big games we can do far better when they are with us,” said Moyes.
“To win the group has given us an added edge, but we still have to play well to qualify. We have an opportunity to try and win a competition, if possible, but we first have to get through this tie.”
For his part, Rooney revealed that he would love nothing more than to celebrate his new contract by claiming a second Champions League winner’s medal.
“One is never enough, especially at this club,” he said, referring to their 2008 triumph.
“The feeling you get when you win it is incredible, so there is no way that you want to stop.”
Rooney added: “I want to be remembered as a winner. That’s what we aim to do – win trophies – so that’s what you’ll be judged on when you finish your career. That’s not just me – that’s the whole team.”
