(Image): Manchester United post picture of stormclouds as Wayne Rooney sits on the bench again

In the buildup to this evening’s game against Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League, Manchester United’s official Instagram page posted this image of a brooding sky over Old Trafford. Instagram accounts are usually the blandest social media mouthpieces around, so it’s pretty astonishing to see anything that could even possibly be read as negative slip into their strictly controlled output.

A good result against the Ukranian side shouldn’t be an issue whatever the weather, so might it be Wayne Rooney’s continuing presence on the bench that’s rumble of thunder in the distance? The striker has been left out for the second game in a row.

Kick-off is just over half an hour away here at Old Trafford! Where will you be watching the game? #mufc ?????
