Rojo started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester United's 2-0 win over QPR on Saturday, finishing with five tackles, three interceptions, two blocked shots and 11 clearances, though he did pick up a yellow card.

Rojo was all over the pitch Saturday, putting in one of, if not the best performances of his Manchester United career. It was his first appearance since Dec. 8 against Southampton, but he looked fully fit in the match and is fully expected to continue to start as part of Louis van Gaal's back line, whether it's a three-man or four-man defense.

Rojo (quad) was held out of Sunday's match against Southampton as he still lacks match fitness.

Rojo only returned to training Saturday, so he likely wasn't close to playing against the Saints. He will need a full week of training if he wants a shot to face QPR next Saturday.

Rojo (quad) will return to training Saturday, though it is unclear if he will be available for Sunday's match against Southampton.

With Ashley Young the only player out injured, manager Louis van Gaal has no reason to rush Rojo back from his quad injury, which means he may be held out after just returning to practice.

Manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday that he does not expect any of his injured players back for Friday's clash with Newcastle, indicating that Rojo (quad) will remain sidelined.

Rojo has not played since Dec. 8 against Southampton, though he is not expected to be out much longer, and he has a possibility of returning Sunday against Spurs.

Rojo (quad) will not play Saturday against Aston Villa, according to the Mirror.

Rojo was headed for a late fitness test, so while he is close to a return, he may have to wait until Boxing Day against Newcastle.

Rojo returned from a shoulder injury to start and play all 90 minutes of Manchester United's 3-0 win over Hull City on Saturday. He finished with three clearances, two fouls committed, two tackles and 89 passes.

The clean sheet was Rojo's second with Manchester United, and first since they blanked QPR back on Sept. 14. He'll look to continue his scoreless streak Tuesday against Stoke City at Old Trafford.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that Rojo (shoulder) could feature Saturday against Hull City.

Rojo has been sidelined since suffering a dislocated shoulder in the Manchester derby Nov. 2, but he has returned to full training and could actually play as a right-back in place of the injured Luke Shaw, who will be sidelined for up to six weeks because of an ankle injury.
