Ibra sparks United as Sunderland on brink

Ibra sparks United as Sunderland on brink

Manchester United will have a great future if the players continue to take on board Jose Mourinho's criticism, defender Eric Bailly has told the official Premier League website.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford scored in United's win, which keeps the club fifth in the Premier League table.

Twitter user @oibanji posted a short clip which showed Mourinho questioning the chant with a quizzical look on his face.

Jose Mourinho made one or two surprising choices in his starting line-up, with Luke Shaw involved despite public criticism from his manager in the past week and Sergio Romero replacing the injured David de Gea in goal.

United, moved ahead of Arsenal and is four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City with one game in hand over its neighbours.

Victory set United up nicely for Thursday's trip to Anderlecht in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, a competition which guarantees a Champions League place to the eventual winners.

"You don't waste as much energy on stuff you don't really need, so my game is getting better and better". While they have a game in hand on the Tigers, they've failed to score in over 11 hours of Premier League football, and it's hard to see them coming close to survival.

Manchester United's Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic gestures during the English Premier League football match between Sunderland and Manchester United at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland, north-east England on April 9, 2017.

But the government hasn't backed down. "We're going to go on struggling", she said Wednesday, "because the one who tires, loses". Tens of thousands of opponents of President Nicolas Maduro flooded the streets of vehicle .

"The attitude is improving, the training is improving", Mourinho said.

Mourinho on the run-in: "After Manchester City and Liverpool won, if we hadn't won today it would have nearly been mathematically impossible".

"We had lots of players that were not here today and the most important thing after the three points was to have no more injuries".

"Manchester United were playing well, but the red card was a decision that went against us".

"We felt the game was in our pocket".

"But the Europa League becomes fundamental for us, it's the only competition we can win now".

Shaw ultimately played an hour against the Black Cats in which he created four chances, one of which set-up Mkhitaryan to double United's lead moments into the second half, as well as winning 40% of his duels.
