Mkhitaryan doubt for derby?

It has been reported by many that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be a doubt for the Manchester derby next weekend after sustaining a thigh injury that could take around 10 days to heal.

Mkhitaryan picked up the knock in an off-the-ball collision with Marek Suchy during the first half of Armenia’s friendly with the Czech Republic on Wednesday.

The Armenian FA have ruled Mkhitaryan out of their game against Denmark on Sunday and tests results are apparently ‘not encouraging’ at this stage.

However, Mkhitaryan seemed quite positive in his latest Facebook post.
