Manchester United playmaker Shinji Kagawa insists he is fully fit after playing in Wednesday night's 1-0 win over Galatasaray.

Kagawa recently suffered a back injury while on international duty with Japan, but came through the opening match of United's Champions League campaign at Old Trafford.

Speaking to Nikkan Sports, he said: "We got off to a good start at home. We had two or three chances to score, and then when we did convert it became an easier game to play.

When asked about the injury, he said: "Nothing's hurting. I've gotten back into form in practice, but I need to improve a bit more physically and increase my momentum."

Kagawa combined with Michael Carrick for United's goal, with the England international scoring after seven minutes.

"Once I got the ball I was able to pick up speed and move toward the goal," Kagawa added.

"That sort of play is important, but I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to take any big shots."

United travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.
