Picture: Manchester United get timely boost as key man returns ahead of derby

Manchester United Football Club take on Manchester City for the first time of the season this coming Saturday, as Jose Mourinho and Josep Guardiola renew a fierce rivalry. The red half of Manchester have had a few injury concerns ahead of the game, but it looks as though one man will be fit to play.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was a doubt after picking up an injury whilst playing for his native Armenia during the international break, but yesterday, a pictured of the 27-year-old emerged of him arriving at training.

The attacking midfielder has found his chances limited at the start of this season, purely due to the fact that Mourinho had found a winning team whilst he was on the bench.

However, Mkhitaryan came on as a second-half substitute in the game against Hull City, and he single-handedly changed proceedings with his excellent passing and pure directness – eventually, we got the goal through Marcus Rashford, but Mkhitaryan played a huge part.

If he is close to 100% fitness, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mkhitaryan start this weekend, and it’ll be a real opportunity to make that right-wing spot his own.
