Mkhitaryan a doubt for derby


Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains a doubt for Saturday's Manchester derby.

The midfielder sustained a thigh injury when he collided with Marek Suchy during the first half of Armenia's friendly with the Czech Republic last Wednesday.

He missed Armenia's World Cup qualifier against Denmark on Sunday night after being ruled out for ten days and he admits he is a major doubt for Manchester United's clash with neighbours Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.

"I continue extensively my rehabilitation, but I'm not sure yet if I will be fit for the derby this weekend," Mkhitaryan wrote on Instagram.

"I'm motivated as ever and plan to put all my energy to be in great shape as soon as possible... A simple devotion to what I love most - football!

"Thanks for sending me your love and support."
