Manchester United striker Robin van Persie will be fit for next week's derby against Manchester City.

The Daily Mail says Van Persie will be fit to face Manchester City in next week's derby despite being taken off on a stretcher during Manchester United's win over Olympiacos on Wednesday night.

The Dutchman was the hero as he scored a hat-trick to guide his side to a 3-0 win and a 3-2 aggregate victory against their Greek opponents, but his night was cut short in the closing stages after a challenge by Olympiacos defender Kostas Manolas.
