Ibrahimovic admits Mourinho's criticism was justified

The former Inter, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain star was one of six players nominated for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award this week and likened himself to the fictional character Benjamin Button in an interview Sky Sports, claiming he feels better and younger with age.

"But I'm sure United's players know this situation".

The Swede has already played 44 games (40 starts) for United this season, scoring 28 goals and chipping in with nine assists.

"I think he was right in this matter", said Ibrahimovic. I speak for myself and [Anderlecht] was not a good performance.

Mourinho took aim at his attackers after the final whistle and Ibrahimovic has now acknowledged they should indeed have done better.

"But we are still grinding, we are still pushing because we have the Europa League and the end of the Premier League". "We've played many games and I've played in nearly all of them. We fight for it".

Away from your home, Chelsea have won their last three but previous meetings involving both sides at Old Trafford has ended up a stalemate, and Wager 365 are giving chances of 9/4 for United and Chelsea to draw this weekend as a result.

"The best team at the end of the season is the one who is champions and we are far from it". Of course, he still played every minute while the man of the match Marcus Rashford was hooked for Marouane Fellaini in a decision that cost Mourinho's charges the win. "It does not give us anything, this record".

"They have not been playing in Europe this season and they went out from the League Cup early".

"Our unbeaten record is nothing we focus on".
