Wayne Rooney has been passed fit for the Manchester derby but Radamel Falcao remains out through injury, United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed.
Van Gaal denied reports Rooney was suffering from a foot injury and insisted the Manchester United captain is ready to start following a three-match suspension.
But Falcao, who missed the last two games after receiving a kick in training, is still injured.
The Colombian will therefore miss Sunday's hotly-anticipated game against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

In April 2014, GMP received information from the National Crime Agency that between Christmas Day 2013 and 27 January 2014, 1,605 separate files, suspected of containing indecent photographs of children, had been made available on a file sharing site.
The IP address was checked and an address in Ashton-under-Lyne identified and on 2 May 2014, a warrant was executed at the house.
A number of computers and data storage devices were seized and subsequently forensically examined by GMP's high tech crime unit and latterly by an external company; such was the amount of data recovered.
Chat logs were recovered as well as videos of Laskar engaging in sexual acts with a child that had been taken in a hotel room he had booked.
Further examination of the vast amounts of data recovered revealed more than 1.2million images.
He will be sentenced on 9 January 2015.
