Another Man Utd striker reduced to a role on the periphery. His anonymous performance against Stoke simply spoke of a player short of match practice and searching for form. Only at Man Utd would a striker of his class and last season’s joint top Premier League goalscorer be so unsure of a future role in the side. Rumours of s summer move away didn’t come to fruition, with PSG thought to be in the frame. Remains to be seen how long he’ll settle being behind Welbeck and Hernandez in the running to be Rooney’s long-term partner.
