We have to trust each other.

"I am at the age where I can choose what I want to do".

Phil Jones was included, but was forced to withdraw after limping off during England's draw with Germany, which left Mourinho furious.

The centre-back missed the 4-1 win over Newcastle at the weekend and will miss the Champions League tie with FC Basel in Switzerland. Michael Carrick is the third absentee as he continues to struggle with a calf problem. We all know, myself and the fellow players, that certain players influence the levels of the team.

"He was not doing that for us for a few matches and I know that can affect strikers' confidence, so I was really happy that he scored that goal".

36-year-old Red Devils star Ibrahimovic made his return to the pitch following 7 months on the sidelines during his side's Premier League clash with Newcastle yesterday.

"We were not informed about the injections".

"I want to see after 20 minutes, at this moment it looks OK but let's see after 20 minutes".

"Paul Pogba is different class - Paul and Nemanja Matic grew up together at the start of the season and are the engine of the team". Paul Pogba returned from injury, with Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic named among the substitutes. If the team isn't winning, his presence will be important.

As soon as I signed I wanted to focus on the team.

The major absentee is midfielder Taulant Xhaka, who will miss the match due to a one-match ban for accumulating two yellow cards. Today I am very proud of the moment, and for everyone around me because I wouldn't have done it alone.

United suffered just its second loss of the league season to Chelsea on Nov. 5, the last league game United played before the international break.

Reported by online soccer magazine Football 365, Ibrahimovic spoke about his journey back: "In my recovery I have not rushed anything".

Ibrahimovic added, per Sky Sports: "If people knew what kind of injury I had, they would not believe this".
