Jose Mourinho believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be available for Manchester United’s clash with Liverpool on Super Sunday.
Ibrahimovic sat out Tuesday’s first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Hull City at Old Trafford, where second-half goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini secured a 2-0 win for United.
Ibrahimovic has been in superb form for United, who has 18 goals in 28 games across all competitions this season.
He was an unused substitute when United moved effortlessly into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 4-0 win over Reading last Saturday.
“Zlatan is ill, so no problem I think he will be fine,” Mourinho told a post-match news conference, before explaining defender Marcos Rojo is a doubt for the weekend due to a muscular problem.
Defender Marcos Rojo is also doubtful after suffering an injury in the win over Reading, and also missed the Hull clash.
