Rooney has amassed 22 matches for club and country since the start of the campaign, but Moyes has insisted that the 27-year-old will only be dropped if he suffers a dip in form.
The 50-year-old told reporters: "There will be times when we do have to look after him. At the moment, he doesn't need it but I'll be looking for any signs of a dip and if I did see it, then I'd probably look to do so.
"But it doesn't need to be just now. I look at a lot of other clubs and they've played their players continuously. It's just at United here, we've got a squad, we can rotate them, we have got other options.
"So I think I'll try to just wait. If it doesn't come around, and I don't need to rest him, I won't do it."
