Wayne Rooney will be available for the Manchester derby, but teammate Radamel Falcao will be watching from the sidelines.
Rooney will be returning from a 3-match ban after getting past a rumored foot injury, but Falcao still suffers from a training injury and will miss the Etihad Stadium clash.
Man Utd manager Louis Van Gaal said: “Rooney was not injured. The media was writing that but he was never injured.
“Maybe his shoes were too tight, that is possible. But he was never injured and he shall play. He is my captain.”
“Falcao is still injured,” Van Gaal added.
