'I'll be back': Ibrahimovic vows to return

"Everyone is very sad. They have to be strong", said Mourinho. "We play another one and we don't cry, like we didn't today". "It's no news I got injured so I will be out of football for a while", Ibrahimovic wrote alongside a picture on his official Instagram account.

That is because Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, who have been sidelined by respective foot and knee problems, have both told by their manager that, were he in their shoes, he would declare himself fit, having seen Eric Bailly play nine successive games.

"I know [how long they will be out for], but it is for the medical department to be more specific". I just want the player to recover the best he can. Honestly, I'm not sad for the team, I'm not anxious about the impact of not having them. "I'm not sad for the team - the impact not to have them can affect the team in terms of results and ambitions, I don't care about it, I just think about them".

Martial scored a goal and added an assist in a 2-0 win against Burnley in the 2-0 win, but that goal is what will cost United a cool €10 million because it was his 25th since joining the club.

"And let's see what we can do". We can not give the club the Premier League trophy, but we have a 25 per cent chance to win the Europa League.

Following a 2-1 victory over Burnley that leaves United one point behind arch-rivals Manchester City ahead of a derby date on Thursday, the Red Devils boss said: "If we beat Celta Vigo, we go to the final and, yes, it is important to us to play Champions League, but this club wants trophies". I would do a last push.

Manchester United are looking to continue their Premier League hot streak as they head across town for the Manchester Derby on Thursday.

"If they're safe-thinking and surrounded by people with the same mentality as they have, they will be more cautious and it would be more time. If it was me, nobody would stop me to play".

"For us the challenge is getting points on the board and we're still in good shape, despite all the odds", he said.
