Let's say in a derby against Manchester City, [United coach] Nicky Butt doesn't pick him to play that game.

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick has confessed that he thought it was going "to be one of those nights" against Anderlecht, only for his side to dig deep for an extra-time win.

Although he expressed his concern about the extent of the injuries suffered by Rojo and Ibrahimovic, Mourinho refrained from speculating on how long they might be sidelined, instead saying he would wait to see the results of their medical scans.

And Wright also believes that there is space for both Rashford and Zlatan Ibrahimovic up front for Manchester United.

But Nick Viergever quickly levelled on aggregate before Amin Younes hit a last-minute goal for the Dutch who finished the game with 10 men after Joel Veltman had been red-carded in the 80th minute.

On the night of the match, United took a lead with Henrikh Mkhitaryan's goal.

"I'm happy I chose this club because I think this club is the biggest in Manchester, in England and one of the biggest in the world".

Mourinho said he expected to find out more about the two players' injuries within "a couple of days".

Jose Mourinho's side couldn't get that all-important second goal in normal time, but the victor would eventually in the second period of injury time via a superb strike from Marcus Rashford.

Marcus Rashford proved a capable deputy for Ibrahimovic, netting a smartly taken victor to send United into the competition semi-finals for the first time.

Manager Jose Mourinho was concerned by a pair of injuries, as both Marcos Rojo (above) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (below) had to be substituted.

The three other teams to qualify were Ajax (Netherlands), Celta Vigo (Spain) and Lyon (France).

Ibrahimovic, 35, has been a sensation since joining on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain previous year, scoring 28 goals and inspiring United to victory in the League Cup. "But we are in the draw for tomorrow and we still have the dream to win the competition".
