'I hope you know God has arrived' - Mata reveals Ibra intro

'I hope you know God has arrived' - Mata reveals Ibra intro

Mourinho has confirmed that Matic is still carrying an injury since United's win over Watford last week but the Serb will start against the Premier League leaders.

"We are doing what we have to do", the Spain worldwide said ahead of this weekend's "special game". "Which we all know how hard it is to win every single game".

Hopefully, Jose Mourinho has a masterplan to cope without Pogba and United can pull off an unexpected and hugely important win in the context of the title race.

City have had to dig deep to eke out victory in recent matches and Mourinho's men are ready to capitalise on any drop off.

"Physically, December is a very tough month. It's not the best feeling [City continuing to win] but we think about the bigger picture and for us we have to keep up the pace and keep winning and winning". One of those really special games that the Premier League has. When you play Watford, Stoke, West Ham away or whatever, it's very hard to win every single game and we need to be ready if they drop points.

Mata, though, insists they are wrong. It's a insane league and it's too early to think that it's finished.

"You can just imagine the kit men's faces when 6' 5" worth of Zlatan stood over them.

"It's a very special game, we all know that, especially because of the position we both are in the table".

"Yeah, big miss", Mata conceded when asked about Pogba in the wake of United's 2-1 win against CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League, where Pogba got another assist.

He added: "He's a fantastic player".

Even if Ibrahimovic isn't quite the same player after his recent lay-off, there are few better players to have in your dressing room. "I think that team won't be jumping with happiness to play against us".

"Hopefully, first of all, it's a great game of football and, secondly, we can win".
