Manchester United expect Zlatan Ibrahimovic to return before end of year

Next Manchester United manager odds: Who could replace Jose Mourinho?

Mourinho will have Marcus Rashford available to face Huddersfield after the 19-year-old limped off against Benfica with a knee injury.

"All young keepers make mistakes and it is how they react that will decide what kind of future they will have".

Said Mourinho: "I knew how good the goalkeeper was, I told the players that". I never felt we could concede a goal and were solid defensively.

"But we had stats and information about set pieces, so we needed to make him uncomfortable".

"Without any pressure, we knew the goal would arrive", Mourinho said after the Benfica game which was settled by a terrible error by the Portuguese side's 18-year-old keeper.

"So at corners we tried to crowd him and put him under pressure, and from free-kicks we knew he risks a lot".

"This is football and I know he is a great goalkeeper and I wish him well for the future".

The manager came in for strong criticism because United had only one shot on target in Saturday's 0-0 draw away to Liverpool, and last night his team displayed little attacking flair in their 1-0 win against Benfica in Lisbon.

Mourinho told BT Sport afterwards: "We were in control". We went to Liverpool with two midfield players and nothing else.

The former Welsh global, who was speaking as a pundit on Sky Sports, believes that the Red Devils are losing their identity under the pragmatic Portuguese.

The 36-year-old was not initially retained at the end of his contract but agreed a return in August, with Mourinho suggesting at the time he would be fit for the new year.

WAYNE ROONEY was snapped climbing the steps of the swanky Lowry Hotel on Friday afternoon less than an hour before his former Manchester United team-mates arrived.

"Let him take his time and be back when everybody feels is the right moment".

The result left United on the verge of reaching the Champions League knockout stages and the Portuguese manager was happy. "We've played 12 matches - 10 victories, two draws, nine clean sheets".
