Mourinho reveals when Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Rojo will return

The Red Devils fell to their second defeat of the season on Sunday as they went down 1-0 at the hands of Chelsea having seen City continue their relentless form with victory over Arsenal earlier in the day. Yes, it is eight points but there is still a lot of play.

JOSE MOURINHO says Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are closing on a return to first-team action.

United's next outing comes at home to Newcastle United after the global break.

Ibrahimovic has been sidelined since April after he ruptured his knee ligaments in the Europa League semi-final clash with Anderlecht.

Ibrahimovic is back doing ball work at the club's Aon Training Complex and was filmed by team-mate Marouane Fellaini taking part in some shooting drills on Saturday. Pogba, Ibra, Rojo, Fellaini. "They are in good positions so I think we can go into this part of the season, the Christmas period, and after, in a strong position".

The France worldwide has been sidelined since September 12 after picking up a hamstring injury against Basel in the Champions League.

With several of his stars away on global duty, Mourinho has given those who aren't representing their countries a week off to recharge the batteries.

Manchester United's injured players can utilise the global break to regain full fitness while key squad members can get much-needed rest, manager Jose Mourinho has said.

With nine matches to be played across all competitions in December, Mourinho is hopeful that his key players, who were not selected for their national teams for this month's friendlies, get a well-earned break.
