Zlatan Ibrahimovic still suffering effects of long-term knee injury, says Jose Mourinho

Kevin de Bruyne vs Paul Pogba: a study of the influencers in Manchester

Kevin De Bruyne lauds Manchester City's "character" after 13th straight Premier League win

Serbian midfielder Matic limped off with a muscle problem at Watford last week but started in United's 3-1 Premier League victory over Arsenal on Saturday.

A journalist from the BBC, Simon Stone, has said that Manchester United will not lodge an appeal with the Football Association in an attempt to get the suspension overturned.

"I can make a surprise tomorrow and the one that is unavailable, he plays".

All other players who were out are still out.

Mourinho also explained that Ibrahimovic is not injured, per se, but has to be careful how often he plays and trains as he continues to work toward full fitness following his serious knee injury.

The 36-year-old striker made four substitute appearances last month but was left out of the squad at Arsenal. "He sometimes needs some very hard work on the muscular area which supports (the) knee which had problems".

"He was on this cycle of work, divided between the gym and the pitch. He is very happy to play tomorrow and try to keep this momentum - since he was back form injury he has been phenomenal".

Pogba was late into a challenge with Hector Bellerin and although the tackle appeared to be accidental, referee Andre Marriner showed the Frenchman a red card after his foot landed on the back of the Spaniard's leg.

The Manchester Derby's loss is the UEFA Champions League's gain.

"Of course, he's a bit exhausted because it was a huge match at the weekend and just two days to recover for CSKA".
