Jose: "Ibra must rest"

Jose Mourinho ahs hailed Zlatan Ibrahimovic as "phenomenal" but admits he must rest.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Manchester United last summer from PSG and the stats show he is doing a good job. he is for now United's top goalscorer, having netted nine times in 15 appearances so far. The Swede has just missed one game for now due to a suspension.

"Tomorrow is a last effort and then they will have a week without football," Mourinho said ahead of the game. "That week is a week that my players need, especially a guy like him - a striker.

"Sometimes in other positions you can protect yourself a little bit more with experience and with positon but a striker is one of the impossible positions where you cannot hide.

"So he is doing phenomenal. Tomorrow he is going to play again but obviously he cannot play 60 matches. I must give him a rest.

"But as our target striker we can say that he is the only one and the way we normally play we need him".
