Manchester United have been handed a massive injury boost after Jose Mourinho confirmed he has everyone available for selection for the Manchester derby clash against Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola will take his men to Old Trafford as the Premier League returns after two weeks of an international break on 10 September. While on duties with respective national teams, it is always a concern for clubs manager that their respective players avoid picking up any injuries.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan suffered an injury in Armenian's 3-0 defeat to Czech Republic in a friendly clash. This saw him miss his national side's World Cup qualifiers against and the player earlier tweeted that he would be doubtful for the clash against United's local rivals.
Luke Shaw, who returned from a long spell on the sidelines was selected for Sam Allardyce's first England squad. However, the former Southampton man was withdrawn from the squad as a precautionary measure.
The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager has confirmed he has a fully fit squad to face City, but admitted that Mkhitaryan is not in a shape to play a full 90 minutes.
"I'm not saying Micki is ready to play 90 minutes but he is ready to help us. There are no injuries," Mourinho told United's official website.
"Everybody is available. It's not the same as if we were here all week and working, resting and not travelling, but there are no injuries and everybody has returned safely and on time for at least one training session. Everybody is ready and wants to play of course.
"Antonio was able to get one flight direct to Madrid and then to London and Manchester," he added at his pre-match press conference at the Aon Training Complex. "An easy one. Sergio [Romero] and Marcos [Rojo] went around the globe!
"They played in Venezuela and then went to Argentina and then, from there, they came back to Europe but they came back in time for training this morning."
