Henrikh Mkhitaryan fit for Manchester derby, Mourinho confirms
Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be fit for the Manchester derby on Saturday, Jose Mourinho has confirmed, Mirror Online reports.
The £30million summer signing was injured on international duty in Armenia’s 3-0 loss to Czech Republic and returned to England early in a bid to regain fitness.
He had earlier this week told Manchester United fans that he was still “not sure” if he would be fit for the derby despite his best efforts, but Mourinho has told MUTV that Mkhitaryan and fellow doubt Luke Shaw will both be available.
Mourinho confirmed United have “no injuries” ahead of the derby. And on Mkhitaryan he said:
“He is available.
“I’m not saying he’s ready to play 90 minutes but he’s ready to try to help us.”
