Thursday is huge now. Win it and I think we will effectively seal 4th spot with a decent chance of even getting 3rd. A draw would not be the worst result away from home and keeps us in touch whilst a defeat will leave us as outsiders in the race. I too hope that he goes with Marial and Rashford in the side, we are in a position where playing for a draw is not really building on recent momentum gained. That's gratitude for you.. United wouldn't be anywhere near 4th only for Zlatan.
As far as Ibra is concerned, I would prefer if he moved on as Mourinho will continue to play him when fit and I think it has inhibited some of the younger players.
If nothing else he would be a fantastic figure to have around the club for the younger players.
Rashford needs a rake of chances to score one goal. The only world class players United have are De Gea and Ibra. If they lose one or both and any fan thinks it's a good thing they've lost the plot.
Aye and Zlatan buried everything he saw, as the game v Anderlecht showed.
Yes plenty of forwards including the best of them that played for Manchester United sometimes need a rake of chances to score. Andy Cole anyone?
Should also take into account that Rashford is still a teenager and when Ibrahimovic was that age he was playing for Ajax scoring just nine goals that season.
I see Mata has hinted he may return before the season ends. A good man to score or create important goals.
