Manchester United will be desperate to taste victory after the debacle that occurred midweek against Bristol City that saw them ousted from the Carabao Cup.

Mourinho has also confirmed Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready to start a game in the Premier League for the first time since April after playing 69 minutes against Bristol City on Wednesday.

Against United, they will see the return of Nigerian youngster Onyinye Ndidi who has served his one game ban following his birthday red card against Crystal Palace.

"If we don't, it's finished but until last match of the season we have work to do".

The festive period of English soccer is one of the most hectic periods of the year.

With the winter transfer window opening in nine days, Manchester United will be looking to strengthen going into the second half of the season.

If Mourinho didn't want this to come off as to say that Bristol City were lucky, then don't say Bristol City was lucky.

"All the questions are what the value of this player is but myself, as a coach, I prefer to stay with the more important players but on the other side I can understand the business side, too".
