Zlatan & Mkhitaryan On Target As Man Utd Maintain Top Four Hopes

Posted April 10, 2017

Jose Mourinho was delighted with Luke Shaw's performance in Manchester United's 3-0 Premier League victory at Sunderland on Sunday.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring with a powerful strike from the edge of the box shortly before Sebastian Larsson saw red for a risky tackle on Ander Herrera.

NAIJ.com can report that Sebastian Larsson was the major culprit for the hosts after picking up an embarrassing red card for a bad tackle on Frenchman Paul Pogba.

Mkhitaryan put the game to bed with a low strike before Rashford's first Premier League goal since September 24 wrapped up a win that moves United within four points of a Champions League berth.

"He told Sky Sports 1: "(It was an) Important three points.

Therefore at the half-time whistle, Moyes was left with a big job to do to rally his players to try and get back into the match in the second half while Mourinho would have been hoping his side could go on and kill the game off.

Some of Bannon's supporters are anxious that he miscalculated by aligning himself with Priebus, who is despised by Trump diehards. McCarthy has been an ally to Trump since the summer, but, as with Cohn, it's unclear how deep Trump's trust runs with them.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled United's lead 46 seconds after the interval and the game petered out, with Sunderland offering little in response as they failed to score for the seventh league game in succession. Today was a good win and we have to keep working, keep believing we can reach the top four. "It was good to protect him, but was also good for him to play one hour with a good solid performance and no mistakes, so I'm really pleased for him".

Romero makes his first league appearance of the season, with David De Gea being left out completely from the matchday squad.

The Uruguayan arrived in Manchester from Independiente amid much hype and expectation, but ultimately failed to deliver during his time at Old Trafford, scoring just 17 goals in almost 100 games before leaving for Villarreal. Manager David Moyes rued Larsson's controversial dismissal.

If Mourinho was to write down the qualities required of his flawless left-back, he would have pace, confidence to go forward, be good in attacking areas, strong in the tackle and defensively astute: basically, a modern-day version of Ashley Cole.

Mourinho said: "After Liverpool and Manchester City's victories, if we didn't win today it's nearly mathematically impossible [to finish fourth]".

They can, of course, win the Europa League and qualify for Europe's top competition that way.
