Manchester United will hope to continue their winning form when they host Middlesbrough on Saturday to cap off an up and down year.
The Red Devils have struggled with consistency this year and their meeting with Middlesbrough could be their fifth league win in a row and 10th game undefeated.
Zlatan chases record
Zlatan Ibrahimović who has been in scintillating form since joining United scoring 17 goals and assisting five since his arrival.
Should he score against Boro he will equal Messi for the most club goals scored in the 2016 calendar year with 51 and a brace will see him become the outright top club goal scorer of the year.
To do this Zlatan will look to Paul Pogba who he has created a formidable partnership with and the have been the key to United’s late success.
The news from the United camp is that captain Wayne Rooney is still out with a thigh injury although he is expected to return to action soon.
Luke Shaw also misses out because of his groin injury although Mourinho has told the press that he is back in training and could return soon.
Interesting news is that Bastian Schweinsteiger has been included in the squad a could be a surprise inclusion on the bench with the German midfielder only having made one appearance so far, this season.
For Middlesbrough, Antonio Barragan will join injured Viktor Fischer on the absentee list after picking up his fifth yellow of the season earning him a suspension.
Manchester United go into the game with four consecutive league victories behind them and will be looking for nothing less than three points.
Middlesbrough on the other hand arrive having won just two of their last six games and so will be desperate to try and take something out of the match.
A win for United will put some pressure on the top four as they steadily catch them whilst a draw will mean they will fall even further behind.
Middlesbrough currently sit just four points above the relegation zone and so any points this weekend will be a bonus as they look to avoid the relegation battle.
Kick off is scheduled for 15:00 local time at Old Trafford.
