Zlatan Ibrahimovic lays down roaring wish to Manchester United

The furthest Ibrahimovic has gone in the Champions League was the semi-final in 2010, under the guidance of Pep Guardiola. "Taken in the right way, it is a handsome thing, so I hope that on Sunday before the game you have a city full of colour, red and blue, and after the game the same, and, during the game, that's a football match where everybody wants to win".

Nemanja Matic is now carrying a muscle problem after coming off during the second half of last week's 4-2 win at Watford but Mourinho will still risk the midfielder.

Ibrahimovic also left Jose Mourinho's Inter Milan team a single season before they famously became the champions of Europe.

"I understand that from him and I'm sure we will do our best to earn some more silverware this season".

Jones was an ever-present in the side before suffering an injury on worldwide duty and faces a fight for his place, with Marcos Rojo's return from the sidelines and an upturn in performance from summer signing Victor Lindelof. Matic is injured but he plays.

The Belgian midfielder is a vital cog in Mourinho's squad and in the absence of Paul Pogba, who begins his three match suspension after his straight red against Arsenal, his return will be crucial.

"He has a good manager and good staff around him".

"Zlatan is available. Jones is available", Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

Jones has missed the last six games with a thigh injury but is fit again, although Eric Bailly remains sidelined.

"There are so many things that are out of control that can totally transform the direction of the game".

Carrick is hoping for a swift return to action and Matic can not wait to see the veteran back in the matchday squad. I don't need to talk about him because he's a great player, but I know him as a man too and I know he's a great man.
