Mourinho braced for Ibrahimovic, Rojo bad news

Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Manchester United's lengthening injury list on Thursday, with manager Jose Mourinho saying his outlook is "fairly negative" about the striker.

The striker has 10 goals for United this season, including an extra-time victor in the Europa League last-eight.

Mourinho again voiced reservations about the prospect of the 19-year-old being called up by England for this year s Under-21 European Championship.

United switch their focus back to the Premier League as they travel to Burnley on Sunday before travelling to Manchester City on April 27.

"I want to wait (for tests), but my feeling is not good".

Marcus Rashford was the hero with his 107th-minute goal, but the triumph came in a cost for the hosts, who lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo to harms.

Rashford, Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba were all held guilty for the major misses they made which gave out a picture of Manchester United lacking their "killer" touch.

After the match, BT Sports reporter Des Kelly caught up with the Manchester United manager to get an injury update on both men.

Daley Blind stepped in alongside Bailly on Thursday but Mourinho also urged English defenders Jones and Smalling to speed up their return from injuries.

"He can not play every game", Mourinho said after being asked if Rashford was capable of filling in for Ibrahimovic.

United are also without Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Juan Mata as fixture congestion takes its toll.

Yet Mourinho said: "We have Daley Blind, and it is time for Jones and Smalling to be fearless, to risk, because for the team you have the do everything". United now lie fifth in the Premier League table, four points behind fourth-place Manchester City, with a game in hand.

Marcus Rashford scored United's 107th-minute clincher against Anderlecht, his 10th goal of a season in which he has racked up 44 appearances so far.

"This kind of things make me trust the players".

"It is disappointing. Hopefully it is not too serious because they are two big players for us", said midfielder Michael Carrick.

"We had a lot of chances and could have scored a lot of goals but sometimes games go like that".
