LONDON: Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says striker Radamel Falcao will miss Sunday's derby match against Manchester City but captain Wayne Rooney is fit to play.

Van Gaal says "Falcao is still injured" after sustaining a problem in training but that "Rooney was not injured. He shall play, he is my captain. I am very happy that he can play again." There had been reports that the striker had a foot injury after he was seen apparently limping at a promotional event this week.

Rooney had been suspended for three games after receiving a straight red card in United's 2-1 win over West Ham for kicking out at Stewart Downing.
