Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is winning his battle to be fit for the game against Manchester City this weekend.
The 24-year-old picked up a muscular problem in the 3-1 win against Arsenal earlier this month and he was not available for England duty as a consequence.
However, it appears Rashford should be ready to play some part in the derby on Sunday, and fans on Twitter are very happy to hear that he could be back in contention:

Considering how long Rashford has been sidelined for, it may be a risk for manager Erik ten Hag to start him at the Etihad on Sunday.
There are concerns that the forward could suffer a recurrence if he is brought back too early but, they could really do with having his pace on the counter-attack.
Rashford would definitely increase United’s chances of securing a result at a ground where they have had a decent record over the years.
