Some good news to lighten your Friday afternoon: Manchester United have a fully fit squad for tomorrow's Manchester derby. This includes Luke Shaw, who left the England training after feeling pain in his just-healed leg, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who picked up a thigh injury while playing for Armenia.

On Mkhitaryan, Jose Mourinho told MUTV:

He is available. I'm not saying he's ready to play 90 minutes but he's ready to try to help us. It's not the same as if we were here all week and working, resting and not travelling, but there are no injuries and everybody has returned safely and on time for at least one training session. Everybody is ready and wants to play, of course.

Are we going to see the mouthwatering prospect of Marcus Rashford, Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic? No, of course not. Wayne Rooney's going to play. But still, fully-fit United squads don't come along all that often, so you have our permission to let your imaginations run wild.
