Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford has declared himself fit for the visit of Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend. The first Manchester Derby of the new league season is scheduled to take place at the Theatre of Dreams on Saturday evening and England international Rashford is determined to play a big part for home team Manchester United amidst an ongoing shoulder problem.

Marcus Rashford spoke to the club’s official website ahead of the game as he declared that he’s in top shape for the game. All he wants to do for Manchester United is score goals, play well and provide assists for the team. The 23-year-old has struggled with a shoulder problem in recent games but he says he doesn’t want to miss the big Manchester United games and the Manchester Derby is certainly in that category.

Marcus Rashford was subbed off with the shoulder problem during the Champions League defeat to French giants PSG last week. He missed the final 15 minutes of the matchday five game which ended in a 3-1 win for the visitors. Rashford was then kept on the bench for last league game, a 3-1 comeback victory at West Ham United. He scored the third goal to help secure the points after coming on as an half-time substitute. Marcus Rashford played the whole game on Tuesday night as Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League following the 3-2 loss to hosts RB Leipzig in their final game in Group H.

Ahead of the Manchester Derby this weekend, the two teams are separated by one point and one place on the league table. Manchester United are in sixth place with 19 points from the ten games played, while Manchester City are in seventh spot with 18 points from the ten games played. The Manchester Derby is the standout fixture for the week 12 games this weekend.
