Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he will help Wayne Rooney to score one more crucial goal after the Manchester United captain broke the club's European goalscoring record.

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is confident Henrikh Mkhitaryan will come good at Old Trafford irrespective of his hard start.

Feyenoord need a win in their last Europa League game against Fenerbahce and hope Manchester United suffer a shock defeat at Zorya Luhansk a fortnight later in order to qualify for the last 32 of the competition.

Mourinho claims his past experiences in title races, could yet prove useful at Old Trafford.

"You can recover points, other teams they can lose points".

Mourinho said that United were seeking success in Europe, despite not being in the Champions League.

But the former Chelsea manager is confident that the pendulum of fortune will swing back in his team's favour.

"During the season there are moments where everything goes against you".

"I didn't even ask him because it's not important for me and I'm 100 per cent sure the media doesn't know what really happened". He's got wonderful feet, can see a pass, plays one-twos around the corner.

Pogba and Ibrahimovic have both been regular fixtures in the Manchester United line-up since their summer moved to Old Trafford.

Rooney opened the scoring in the 35th minute to become United's top-scorer in European football history, passing Ruud van Nistelrooy's 38.

But United have struggled for creativity this season and have only scored 17 times in their first 12 Premier League games.

"We lost 4-0 and sometimes somebody loses 5-1 or whatever but it's not very usual. We are a great team together". Every game is very hard.

Former Liverpool 'keeper Brad Jones was beaten by a Rooney chip, with the England frontman latching onto an fantastic Zlatan Ibrahimovic pass to grab a 39th goal in European competition - one more than Ruud van Nistelrooy managed.

Lingard still found time to put the icing on the cake for United, picking the ball up on the edge of the area two minutes into stoppage time before curling a fine effort into the bottom corner.
