The England skipper missed the last three games through suspension after receiving a red card against West Ham United last month and then a foot injury picked up in training made him a doubt for the game against City.

However, those worries have been allayed and the 29-year-old will be welcomed back to the fold as Louis van Gaal could have been facing a striker shortage had he been unfit to play.

With summer signing Radamel Falcao recovering from a thigh problem, Robin van Persie and youngster James Wilson were the only other forwards without injury.

Rooney has a great record against the Citizens, topping the all-time derby goalscoring table with 11 in 22 appearances.

The Englishman will need to continue this form against City if the red half of Manchester wants to have a chance against the reigning champions.
