Mourinho provides injury update on Mkhitaryan and Shaw ahead of Manchester derby

The Manchester United manager has a full squad available to pick from for tomorrow's derby.

United take on fierce rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford tomorrow afternoon.

Ahead of the 12.30pm kick-off, the United boss confirmed that he has no injury worries for the crunch clash:

There had been worries over the fitness of new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan after he was forced off while playing for Armenia over the international break.

"I'm not saying he's ready to play 90 minutes, but he's ready to help us," the United boss told MUTV.

Despite his withdrawal from the England squad before their World Cup qualifier last Sunday, it seems as though left-back Luke Shaw is also available.

The Portuguese coach is expected in front of the media any minute now as both he and Pep Guardiola talk strategy ahead of the mammoth Premier League fixture.
