Victor Lindelof says he's still adapting to extra Man United pressure

On Ibrahimovic, Mourinho said: "Zlatan is not injured".

In this week's entry he reflects on two wins over Watford and Arsenal, and looks ahead to our final Champions League group stage match against CSKA Moscow, and to the Manchester derby on Sunday. "But he's very happy to play and to try to keep his momentum because since he was back from injury, he's been phenomenal".

"Of course he's maybe a bit exhausted and has only had a few days to recover, but he's very happy and he'll try to keep his momentum, because since he's been back he's been phenomenal".

"He sometimes needs some very hard work on the muscular area which supports [the] knee which had problems". When the hard work starts and fatigue comes, for that period of time he can not play for these days.

CSKA Moscow coach Viktor Goncharenko believes his side's bad luck will be Manchester City's gain as he prepares to face Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.

"When the time for that hard work comes the fatigue comes". He is in a cycle of work, in the gym and on the pitch.

However, they are eight points behind table-topping City in the Premier League table so Mourinho will not take any chances with Ibrahimovic.

And despite his change in goal, it does not seem that he is willing to give the likes of Luke Shaw and other fringe men a run-out. Of course he is a bit exhausted because it was a huge match last weekend and he has just two days to recover for CSKA but he is very happy to play tomorrow and try to keep his momentum. He'll be back to normal after CSKA'.

Apparently the Portuguese has earmarked a left-back, right winger and playmaker in his January bargain hunt, and to make room for the new additions the Sun says that Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian will be shown the door.

"Selected tomorrow - for sure".

'I'm going to make a few but not too many changes, ' Mourinho added.

"To be honest I didn't know about this record and I hope we will be the first to end it". "Whether he starts or is on the bench, I can not answer".

Pogba played one of his best games since he joined Manchester United in 2016.
