Ralf Rangnick confirms Man Utd striker is fit to face Manchester City

Cavani fit for Manchester derby

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has confirmed the availability of Edinson Cavani for Sunday’s derby against Manchester City.

The Uruguay international has barely played for the Red Devils since the last winter break, having been nursing a groin problem.

He has suffered a couple of setbacks along the way, but Rangnick has now confirmed that he is fit to make the matchday squad.

The German tactician still raised doubts over his fitness. This suggests that Cavani may start on the bench in the Manchester derby.

The Red Devils will be desperate to return to winning ways on Sunday with their top-four prospects getting slimmer by the game.

They are presently placed fourth in the standings with 47 points, but sixth-placed Arsenal are just two behind them with three matches in hand.

The Gunners are currently in the driving seat for the final Champions League place, and United can ill-afford a defeat against their arch-rivals.

West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers could also benefit from United dropping points at the Etihad Stadium.
