Manchester United's attempt to keep up with early season pacesetter Chelsea at the top of the Premier League could be hit by key players having been injured on international duty.

Although goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar should be fit to start his first match of the season against Bolton on Saturday, striker Wayne Rooney is out because of a calf injury and midfielder Darren Fletcher also looks set to be on the sidelines.
