Ibrahimovic is expected to make a return to Jose Mourinho’s team in 2018
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has rejoined his Manchester United team-mates as he continues recovering from a long-term knee injury.

The Swede suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in a Europa League tie against Anderlecht in April forcing a premature end to his debut season at Old Trafford.

It has been reported by The Sun that Ibrahimovic

has been in training at the club’s Carrington facilities amongst the first team for the past seven days as the coaching staff look to reintroduce the striker to the senior squad.

He has reportedly spent 20 to 25 minutes in each session with the senior squad, and is said to be operating at ‘around 90 per cent.’

The 36-year-old scored 17 goals in 28 Premier League appearances helping United to a fifth-placed finish in the top-flight as well as five goals in their Europa League triumph as United sealed a Champions League spot in his absence.

But his United career looked to be all-but over after that fatal night in Manchester, as his one-year deal with Jose Mourinho’s side was originally left un-renewed.

But a u-turn was made by Mourinho which saw the former Barcelona and Paris Sain-Germain striker make a return to the former Premier League champions, and has since been in training as he eyes a recovery to first-team football.

Marcus Rashford and Eric Bailly are injury doubts for Manchester United's Premier League trip to Huddersfield on Saturday.
Bailly returned from international duty with the Ivory Coast injured and did not travel to Lisbon for United's Champions League win over Benfica on Wednesday night. Phil Jones was also nursing an injury after starting in the weekend draw with Liverpool and remained on the bench as Chris Smalling was partnered by Victor Lindelof.

dicated he felt a problem with his knee.
United flew to Benfica without injured quartet Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic but Mourinho refused to focus on the first-team absences.
"Phil Jones to be on the bench he was feeling that in case of real need he would help us," Mourinho said. "So if he was in that stage today, on Saturday he will be in conditions to play. Bailly, I don't think so.

"Rashford I thought it was cramps because he was running so much, it was about muscular fatigue, but he felt something in his knee but to me it doesn't look a big thing.
"Other managers cry and cry and cry, I don't cry. The way to do it is ignore the players who are injured, give confidence to the players are available, I can cry for the next five minutes. Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Fellaini, Marcos Rojo, I can cry but I don't.
"So we do it with what we have. We went to Liverpool with two midfield players and nothing else. We brought the kid today like Benfica does, I have no other solution, I brought Scott McTominay, who is the same age as the Benfica kids."
Mourinho admitted United targeted Benfica's 18-year-old Champions League debutant Mile Svilar, whose gaffe gifted Rashford the winner.

"We were in control, David de Gea did not have one save to make," Mourinho added. "I never felt we could concede a goal and were solid defensively. Sometime I feel being good defensively is a crime, but that is a way of getting results. We are one point from qualifying and one victory away from winning the group with two games at home to play. A good game, solid.
"I knew how good the goalkeeper was, I told the players that. We had a little bit of a strategy, especially on set-pieces to make him uncomfortable. We put men around him on corners so he cannot come out. He risks a lot, but only top keepers do that. He was unlucky for the goal.
"We knew the Benfica pressure could not stay for 90 minutes. The amazing defensive work Liverpool did against us, Benfica could not do that for the whole game. Without any pressure, we knew the goal would arrive. We forced a little more and with quality and sharpness we could have killed the game more."

ANTONIO CONTE ripped into Jose Mourinho after the Manchester United boss appeared to call him a cry baby.

Chelsea blew a two-goal lead amid claims by boss Conte that he has too many injured players and his squad is not big enough.

rs for five minutes: Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Rojo.”

The remarks by the former Chelsea boss infuriated frustrated Conte who has hit back and told Mourinho to butt out.

Conte said: “If he is speaking about me, I think he has to think about his team and start looking at himself, not others.

Edin Dzeko bagged a brilliant double for Roma before Chelsea revived for a 3-3 draw"I think that a lot of times Mourinho has to see what happens at Chelsea - a lot of time, also last season.”

Conte has been complaining that he is 'risking' his overworked players because he is forced to play the same ones over and over again.

GARDEN OF EDEN: Chelsea 3 Roma 3 - Eden Hazard and Edin Dzeko both score twice in thriller

Wind-up specialist Mourinho has clashed with Conte before. Last season he criticised Conte for whipping up the Chelsea fans during their 4-0 thrashing of Manchester United.

Chelsea supporters have also turned on their one-time hero and taunted him when he returned with his new club in an FA Cup tie at Stamford Bridge last season.

The feuding pair meet again at Stamford Bridge in just a few weeks’ time on November 5 – fireworks night.

Skipper Gary Cahill played much of the second half with a bandage wrapped around his head after taking a knock on the jaw but it is not considered serious.

Defender David Luiz was subbed as a precaution because of calf trouble with Chelsea already without inspirational midfielder N’Golo Kante and wing back Victor Moses for last night’s Group C match.

Chelsea salvaged a point through Eden Hazard’s headed equaliser and frustrated Conte admits he cocked up.

Defender David Luiz enjoys his opener on a fluctuating night for the BluesHe said: “I like to be honest and, for sure, I didn't like the type of football that we did for a long part of the game.

"But it's right to take the responsibility for this because I tried, on the one hand, to protect my team and make us more solid, and to move Luiz into central midfield.

“But on the other hand we lost totally our knowledge and style of football. I didn't like this. At the end I think the result was fair but, in the first half, we were 2-0 up. But we weren't in control of the game.

“It's right to take the responsibility for this. But I repeat, sometimes, you have to find the right solution to try to protect your team.

Jose Mourinho feels rival managers whine too much when they have injuries"Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. But you know very well our situation.

"It was good to draw because Roma deserved this result. I have to praise my players because they showed me big effort, big commitment tonight, otherwise we'd have lost the game.”

Former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko scored twice as Chelsea were themselves forced to come from behind and salvage a point through Eden Hazard 15 minutes from time and narrowly avoid a third successive defeat.

Eden Hazard saved a point for Chelsea with his second goal of the night vs RomaChelsea stay top of Group C despite losing their 100 per cent record in the competition but now face two away games on the trot in Europe.

Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco said: “We could easily have secured the three points, but we mustn't forget we were two down after two individual mistakes.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte talks about not risking Alvaro Morata and says his players are playing too many games ahead of Roma Champions League tie
"We took the game to Chelsea and really tried to win the match. This is the right mentality and, with this performance, we have to grow in awareness. Today we proved our character.”

“We know Edin scores lots of goals, but I'm especially happy with his approach and the service he gives the team. He had other chances today and might have scored more. It was a very good performance by him.”

​Manchester United made it three wins from three in the Champions League with a 1-0 triumph in Lisbon against Benfica while Chelsea had Eden Hazard to thank for rescuing a point at home to Roma. 
The action got underway in Azerbaijan with Qarabag producing an excellent defensive display to earn themselves their first point of the tournament. The shock 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid meant Chelsea had a golden opportunity to put one foot in the Last 16. 
It started so well for the Blues with David Luiz and Eden Hazard giving them a 2-0 lead.

d Alexander Kolarov pulled one back shortly before half time. Two goals in 5 minutes from Edin Dzeko then completely turned the tie. The first was a stunning volley, the second a header from a free kick. 
The former Manchester City man then missed a golden opportunity to complete his hat trick and Chelsea would punish him with Hazard's second goal meaning the points were shared. Chelsea stay top of Group C ahead of their trip to Rome in a fortnight.
Manchester United continued to control Group A with a 1-0 win against Benfica. A forgettable game had a freak winning goal. A long range Marcus Rashford free-kick was carried over his own goal line by Benfica's 18-year old goalkeeper Mile Svilar. 
Benfica remain bottom of the group while Manchester United can secure progression to the knockout stages in the return fixture.
Basel moved into second place following a fine 2-0 win over CSKA Moscow. The Swiss side outclassed their hosts, with goals from Taulant Xhaka and Dimitri Oberlin securing the points. 
Celtic could not build on their win over Anderlecht in the previous matchday as they were swept aside by Bayern Munich. The German giants never looked like losing with Muller, Kimmich and Hummels all on the scoresheet in a 3-0 win. 
PSG continue to romp through Group B though as they kept a third successive clean sheet against Anderlecht. 
They also found the net on four occasions with the much fabled trio of Mbappe, Cavani and Neymar all scoring. Angel Di Maria completed the rout against the hapless Belgians.
Juventus were thankful for an 84th minute winner from Mario Mandžukić to earn them three points against Sporting. Behind to an own goal, last season's beaten finalists levelled swiftly through Miralem Pjanić. Juve then battered their opponents but had to wait until six minutes from time to celebrate the winner. 
The Old Lady remain three points behind Barcelona who got their third successive win against Olympiakos. 
An own goal from Dimitris Nikolaou set Barca on their way with two goals in the second half sealing the win. Lionel Messi made it 2-0 with Lucas Digne scoring his first Barcelona goal. Nikolaou made up for his own goal with a consolation at the right end in stoppage time.

NEMANJA MATIC has revealed the words Jose Mourinho spoke inside the dressing room of Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Benfica.

“We scored a goal from Marcus Rashford’s free-kick and we had more chances,” he said.

“We played well in the second half and played well enough to take three points. It was hard for us but we managed to win.

“The manager said to us to try and shoot and get some crosses towards their goalkeeper because he is young and playing in his first game.

“This is football and I know he is a great goalkeeper and I wish him well for the

“We had control, some difficulties in the first 30 minuets but then we controlled the pitch. We used our experience.

“We could not find the second goal but did not make any mistakes at the back.”

JOSE MOURINHO says Marcus Rashford could have had a knee injury.

The Manchester United star limped off late on during the Red Devils’ crucial 1-0 victory against Benfica.

England international Rashford netted the winner after a howler from Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar.

However, despite the impressive result, United boss Mourinho was worried about Rashford.

“He felt something in his knee,” said Mourinho after the game.

“Rashford felt something in his knee, I hope nothing important,” he said.
