The Portuguese man Jose Mourinho, who is currently managing the Manchester United, expects Zlatan Ibrahimovic to be fit for Manchester United's keenly anticipated Premier League showdown with Liverpool.

The 35-year-old former Swedish forward was out on Tuesday's first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Hull City at Old Trafford due to ill, where second-half goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini secured a 2-0 win for United.


But, according to the Manchester United’s boss, United’s top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has already scored 18 goals in 28 games across all competitions this season, will be fine to take a chunk out of the five-point gap between Jurgen Klopp's second-place side and his own men in sixth on Sunday.

As in a post-match news conference Mourinho said, 

"Zlatan is ill, so no problem I think he will be fine,"
