Manchester United’s Antonio Valencia could be a doubt for their derby clash against City next week as he is away on international duty with Ecuador until the day before the match.

Valencia, on the shortlist for the Premier League’s player of the month after an impressive start to the season at right back, will return to Manchester next Friday, United manager Jose Mourinho said.

“The day before Man City, we will still have Sergio Romero, Marcos Rojo and Antonio Valencia arriving,” Mourinho told the club website.

“It will be a complicated process but we know it is like this when we have these players. And I would love all of the players to go because it would mean that everybody is being selected for their national teams.”
