Man Utd boss Mourinho declares Herrera ready for action

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed Ander Herrera's return from injury.

The Spaniard has been sidelined with an ankle injury since September 2.

"Ander is ready," Mourinho told MUTV. "Marcos Rojo is the only player that is not available through injury and it's Marcus Rashford's last suspension match.

"I'm just thinking about the matches and this one is a cup match and the rules change. After a draw you go straight to a penalty shootout, which obviously is a 50-50 situation.

"So it is a match of 90 minutes, which we have to try and win, and the choice of the players is based on that."
