Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic should be fit to return into action for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.
Ibrahimovic has missed his side’s last two games, being rested for their FA Cup victory over Reading on Saturday before sitting out this evening’s EFL Cup semi-final win over Hull City due to illness.
The former PSG striker is now a minor doubt for the visit of title-chasing Liverpool to Old Trafford, but Mourinho expects to have the striker available for the match known as North-West Derby.
And when asked if he felt the illness will keep Ibrahimovic out of the key fixture against Liverpool, Mourinho told BT Sport: ‘I don’t think so.’
- Ibrahimovic has scored 12 goals in his last 12 appearances for United and has 18 goals in 28 outings since joining the club.
- This derby is a high profile inter-city rivalry between English professional football clubs Liverpool and Manchester United.
- Ibrahimović signed as a free agent for Manchester United on a one-year contract.
