Jose Mourinho: Zlatan Ibrahimovic can leave Manchester United

Jose Mourinho gestures on the sidelines

The former Paris Saint-Germain forward has found game time limited this season due to knee problems and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal has threatened to curb his involvement in the first team even further.

Spurs face a critical run of fixtures starting with Wednesday's match against United.

The man who looks most likely to stop that is Tottenham's in-form talisman Harry Kane who is just one goal shy of becoming the latest Premier League centurion. Who are you backing? But we will always have teams like Burnley.

Jose Mourinho has nearly a fully fit squad to choose from, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly the only absentees for the Red Devils. And though Spurs won the previous two home meetings against United, historically they have lost to the Salford Mancunians a total of 80 times, more than any other Premier League opponent, including Arsenal.

David Beckham has backed Jose Mourinho to be Manchester United's manager for the long-term following the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal. Earlier this season, the United manager questioned whether the £268 million he has spent on transfers at Old Trafford was enough to compete with runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

United have kept clean sheets in their last six games in all competitions. But is he the right person to lead Manchester United? He should start his first Premier League game in United jersey.

Having chalked up only seven wins in their last 15 Premier League games, Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham have fallen dramatically out of contention for the league title and now sit on the outside of the Champions League spots.

'Every day I try to tell myself how lucky and how privileged I am, try to take advantage of every single training session, and try to see how important it is to be a Manchester United player'.

Sanchez made his debut for United in their FA Cup clash against Yeovil Town where he provided two assists in the 4-0 win while grabbing the man of the match honour. With that, as well as all going well on the pitch and Sanchez not joining Manchester City, it was just what United needed after a somewhat desperate December, which brought defeat in the derby, an end to the Carabao Cup defence and ended with three straight league draws. As he was for our last visit to Wembley 11 months ago, Andre Marriner will be in the middle for Wednesday's game.
