United manager Jose Mourinho bowed to pressure for Rooney to be left out of the starting line-up following a number of lacklustre performances from the England forward.

Defender Chris Smalling will captain United against Leicester at Old Trafford as they bid to avoid a third successive league defeat.

Mourinho also named 18-year-old striker Marcus Rashford in his team along with midfielder Jesse Lingard.
