​Ibrahimovic and Pogba return for Man Utd

Long term injury victims Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba return to the Manchester United squad for Saturday's Premier League game against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Defender Marcos Rojo is also available and manager Jose Mourinho said "all three will be selected".

"Paul you can see. Clearly you can see there was a Manchester United this season before and after his injury," added Mourinho.

"He has qualities that influence our approach in matches."

"Last season we played with Zlatan every minute," added Mourinho.

"(We have) learned how to play without him. Of course we welcome him back. He is an incredible personality.

"We can't expect him (Ibrahimovic) to play full 90 minutes or consecutive matches. He needs time to be back to his level - fitness and sharpness is everything."
