Jose Mourinho has said he will welcome Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic back into the fold shortly.

Pogba has been missing since the middle of September while Ibrahimovic is yet to play this season.

But Mourinho thinks they could both be ready for the Christmas period.

“We have the group of players which are the ones that we hope will recover as soon as possible,” he told MUTV.

“They have to work every day but they are in a good position now. 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.”
