Mourinho: 'Zlatan To Face Liverpool'

José Mourinho expects Zlatan Ibrahimovic to be fit for Manchester United's keenly anticipated Premier League showdown with Liverpool.

Ibrahimovic sat out Tuesday's first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Hull City at Old Trafford, where second-half goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini secured a 2-0 win for United.

"Zlatan is ill, so no problem I think he will be fine," Mourinho told a post-match news conference, before explaining defender Marcos Rojo is a doubt for the weekend due to a muscular problem.

In Ibrahimovic's absence, it was left to another imposing penalty box presence to seal victory over a heavily depleted Hull.
