United star Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to be fit for the Manchester derby on September 10 after overcoming a recent knock.
Mkhitaryan, who joined the Red Devils from Borussia Dortmund this summer, was injured whilst on international duty with Armenia on Wednesday night.
The 27-year-old was subbed in the 38th-minute of the clash against the Czech Republic following a nasty collision with Marek Sukhy and it was rumoured that he might be out for some time.
However, the coaching staff are said to have only taken the attacking midfielder off as a precaution and expect him to feature in Sunday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Denmark.
The news will be welcomed by United who are hoping to get the better of their City rivals when the pair go head-to-head at Old Trafford in just nine days time.
Mkhitaryan is yet to feature on a regular basis for his new club but a cameo performance in the 1-0 victory over Hull City has put him in the frame for a Premier League start.
