Zlatan Ibrahimovic praises Luke Shaw

The result moves United to within four points of the Champions League places, with a game in hand on fourth-place Manchester City, and Ibrahimovic is refusing to give up hope of bridging that gap.

After Ibrahimovic's moment of inspiration, the result was never in doubt and a red card for Sebastian Larsson left space for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and substitute Marcus Rashford to seal the points for United.

Manchester United breezed past struggling Sunderland 3-0 on Sunday to keep the pressure on the Premier League's top four. "It was under control but we needed the second goal to kill mentally the opponent", United chief coach Jose Mourinho told his club's website.

The United Kingdom people and the fans can watch this match on TV and online with the help of Sky Sports 1/HD and it's Sky Go.

But Mourinho expects De Gea to be fit in time for next Sunday's Premier League home game with leaders Chelsea. "I thought about changing him at half-time because he'd been booked and I needed to be sure he'd be available for the next game but then thought that would be too harsh".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has likened himself to Benjamin Button, saying he "was born old and will die young", after scoring in Manchester United's 3-0 win over Sunderland.

"We did that and, apart from that, there were no more injuries to add to the hard list we have, because we don't hide that we are still fighting for our situation in the Premier League".

With Ibrahimovic now up to 17 Premier League goals for the season at the age of 35, the former Sweden global said he feels like the movie character Benjamin Button, who ages in reverse. "We keep going. We have another home game next Saturday and we have to try and win it", Moyes said.

Mourinho has been a vocal critic of the 21-year-old's in recent weeks, suggesting at one stage that he was the full-back lowest down his pecking order.

Asked about the Luke Shaw situation which has seen the defender publicly criticised by manager Jose Mourinho he said: "He has been doing good". "It's good for Sergio Romero to play before Anderlecht".
