Ibrahimovic, Jones fit for Manchester derby


Manchester united duo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Phil Jones will be fit for the Manchester derby on Sunday at Old Trafford , Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has confirmed.

Midfielder Marouane Fellaini will face a late fitness test but could still be involved, while Nemanja Matic is also available despite struggling with a knock.

However, Eric Bailly and captain, Michael Carrick remain sidelined and will miss the game with Pep Guardiola's side, along with the suspended Paul Pogba who is suffering a three match ban.

Ibrahimovic, who only returned from a cruciate ligament injury last month, missed the 3-1 Premier League win against Arsenal and the 2-1 victory over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Jones has been out of action since having picked up an injury at the last international break, which prompted Mourinho to criticise England national team boss, Gareth Southgate for his decision to field the player in a friendly.

Matic played through a muscle problem against the Gunners and was rested in midweek, while Fellaini has not played since picking up a knee injury playing for Belgium in the last international break.
