There was plenty of concern over Marcus Rashford but he has been declared fit. That is a massive boost to the Red Devils who will need his pace on the counter.

Welcome to our live coverage of the Manchester derby in the EPL at the Etihad Stadium.
KICK OFF! 0-0. It is the visitors that get proceedings underway.
Dalot is the first man into the book today for a late challenge on Grealish.
City should be ahead but United have somehow kept the scores level. We had a double block and a De Gea save within the space of 5 seconds. Superb body on the line stuff.
GOAL! MAN CITY! FODEN! 1-0. City do take the lead this time after a dominant start to the game. Simple low cross by Silva finds Foden who side foots it past De Gea. Where was the Red Devils defence?
It has been an atrocious start by United. They have only had 25% possession, most of which has been under pressure in their own half.
Half chance on the edge of the box for Rashford but his first touch lets him down.
United are struggling to get any of their pacey players into the game. Eriksen being forced very deep.
Another half chance for United. Walker misses a cross-field pass which allows Sancho to dribble at him. The winger then finds Eriksen but at pace the Dane can't get a decent strike on it.
Free kick to City right outside the United box. Grealish again looking dangerous.
So close to 2-0. Gundogan has a shot, De Gea has no chance, but it clips the outside of the post and goes out for a goal kick.
Foden is close to his second. United's defence are completely falling apart, they are no near the pace of this game.
Malacia joins Dalot on the yellow card. United have been so poor here, are they still on the international break?
Eriksen gives away a simple pass which allows City to attack. They win a corner.
De Bruyne tries a shot from distance. But it is weak and off target.
Massive pressure from City. Another couple of blocks before De Gea makes a good save from De Bruyne. City are just faster to everything, United are nowhere near where they need to be.
GOAL! MAN CITY! HAALAND! 2-0. Haaland rises highest from the corner to score. Varane was off injured which will irritate Ten Hag. Well deserved lead goal though.
GOAL! MAN CITY! HAALAND! 3-0. United are being put to the slaughter here. De Bruyne finds Haaland who slides in to score. It has been quite frankly a disgraceful display by the visitors to date.
Fernandes has a shot from distance but Ederson has it covered with ease.
SUB for City - Gomez is on for Walker who is off injured.
GOAL! MAN CITY! FODEN! 4-0. This time Haaland is provider for Foden who scores. It is becoming quite laughable for the visitors. Foden and Haaland on a brace.
HALF TIME! 4-0. Pictures of United supporters leaving the ground ahead of half time sums up the first 45 for the men in red. Superb half for City, they have been utterly brilliant throughout. How much worse could they make this?
There will be 2 minutes of time added on.
KICK OFF! 4-0. City get the second half underway. With the game seemingly up, the visitors will have damage limitation in mind.
Another loose pass by Eriksen gives City a way out.
Corner to City. Dalot did well to get back and make a block.
A good attacking move for United once again breaks down with Eriksen. The Dane is having his worst game in a United jersey.
GOAL! MAN UTD! ANTONY! 4-1. What a cracking goal by the winger. He cuts in from the right, shoots with his left and finds the top corner.
Martial has made his way onto the park for United.
United have been better in the second half but that is largely City who have taken their foot off the pedal.
GOAL! MAN CITY! HAALAND! 5-1. Haaland has yet another hat-trick. Easy finish by his standards as the low cross comes in from the left.
Suddenly City are looking hungry for more.
Fred is on for Sancho.
Antony has another pop from distance. This time it doesn't have the power or direction to trouble Ederson.
GOAL! MAN CITY! FODEN! 6-1. Another hat-trick on derby day for City, this time it is Foden. Haaland once again provider...this man is a machine.
Laporte, Alvarez, Mahrez and Palmer all on for City. De Bruyne, Grealish and Foden off.
This has been an embarrassing day for Manchester United. They have been outplayed in every aspect.
Both teams look like they just want the final whistle. United will want to get out of here asap.
GOAL! MANCHESTER UTD! MARTIAL! 6-2. Good feet by Fred in the box, he shoots from the left, Ederson makes the save but Martial is first to follow-up with his head.
Arsenal certainly look like the biggest challengers to City this season.
FULL TIME! 6-3. City win this comfortably and well deserved. United have plenty to work on, they were not at the races in that first half. Foden and Haaland with hat-tricks.
GOAL! MAN UTD! MARTIAL! 6-3. Martial sticks this into the top corner. Three second half goals by United, they have won the second half 3-2. Sill two minutes of injury time to play.
Martial is brought down in the area. Penalty and the Frenchman will take it.
