"It was "yes", Mourinho, whose side moved above Arsenal and are four points behind Manchester City with a game in hand, told Sky Sport.

United are the bookmakers favourites to win the Europa League.

United now sit sixth in the Premier League table, seven points off the top four, but could also qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League this term.

Ibrahimovic, who is in fine touch and has made a significant contribution to the club's remarkable run of 20 matches without a loss, gave the Daily Mail his assessment of the club's often-controversial manager.

"I think the coach is doing the absolute maximum with the team he has". If we were good enough to be number one, we would be number one in the table. It is part of the game, you feel each other and you either begin strong, or you do not begin strong, but at the end you come into the game and you will play the game and in the end the best team will win.

"When you have it, you have it".

Of Ibrahimovic's performance, Mourinho added: "You need these players sometimes to make it and normally every top team has a couple of them that can make a difference".

The 35-year-old former sweden captain felt that Mourinho's winning mentality will eventually seep down into the entire squad.

"I know Mourinho claimed he had already said to Shaw what he was saying in TV interviews, which was why he thought it was OK to repeat it". He is direct in his work.

Despite that, more than enough folk on Twitter seemed to think the United boss was asking about the song being sung by the away supporters at that particular moment.

Mourinho made a total of five changes to the team held 1-1 by Everton last Tuesday, with Matteo Darmian, Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan also coming in.
