Manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday that Rooney (foot) is fit to face Manchester City on Sunday.

Rooney is eligible to return from a three-match ban for picking up a red card, but he was reportedly also dealing with a foot injury of late. However, he'll return for the Manchester derby and figures to start with Falcao out with a foot injury.

Rooney scored in the fifth minute of Manchester United's 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday, but he was given a straight red card in the 59th minute for kicking Stewart Downing in the leg.

The foul was completely unnecessary and all but ruined the goal he scored earlier in the match. While United were able to hold on for the win, Rooney will now miss United's next three matches, which come against Everton, West Brom and Chelsea.

Rooney scored in the 53rd minute of Manchester United's surprising 2-1 loss to Swansea City at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Rooney took a flicked ball off a corner and scored on a great bicycle kick to level the game at 1-1. He took six shots on the day, with three landing on goal, but appeared to be the only real threat on the attack, as Adnan Januzaj was the only other player to take more than one shot. Rooney will look to start a scoring streak next week against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
