Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has declared himself fit and is set to start against Manchester City on Sunday.

The Belgian limped out of United’s 1-0 win against Brighton a fortnight ago and has missed United’s three matches since the win against the Seagulls.

United are without Paul Pogba for the clash at Old Trafford with the Frenchman serving the first game of his three-match ban.

Jose Mourinho admitted on Friday that Phil Jones, Nemanja Matic and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have all been passed fit for the game but he said he’d wait until Saturday to assess Fellaini.

However, the Belgian is set to be passed fit and will replace Pogba in United’s starting line-up, according to the Mirror.

Fellaini’s return is a significant boost for Mourinho, who knows he must end City’s unbeaten start to the season to get his side back in the title race.
