Ibrahimovic inspiration keeps Man United in top-four race

Manchester United kept their top-four hopes alive as they strolled to a comfortable 3-0 victory at Sunderland.

Brilliant goal. Just before halftime, with United a goal to the good and Oviedo replaced after pulling up during a clearance, Sebastian Larsson was shown red following a raised-leg tackle on Herrera.

However, the home side's hopes of a revival were all but ended two minutes before the break when Larsson was sent off for a risky lunging challenge on Ander Herrera.

However he did score some memorable goals while at the club - including a brace in a memorable 2-1 win against Liverpool in 2002 - and is something of a cult here among United fans. Substitute Rashford added gloss to the scoreline in the 89th minute.

Jose Mourinho's team have drawn nine of their 16 home league games and collected more points on their travels than at Old Trafford.

"Most of the players at Manchester United are young".

"Of course you can not move the same as 10 or five years ago, even 15 years ago, but the older, more experienced, more intelligent, you do not waste so much energy on things you do not really need".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan says Manchester United can not afford to underestimate Belgian league leaders Anderlecht as Jose Mourinho's side attempt to join an elite group of European clubs.

Mourinho on Ibrahimovic: "The game was obviously open at 0-0 but we were in control without danger".

"De Gea's injury is not serious and Romero every time he plays he plays so well", Mourinho told MUTV.

The result left Sunderland 10 points adrift of safety at the foot of the table and Mourinho said they had played like a team who were "close to relegation".

Even if they finish outside the top four, United could qualify for next season's Champions League by winning this year's Europa League.

"We keep going. We have another home game next Saturday, and we have to try and win it", Moyes said.

"After Liverpool and Manchester City's victories, if we didn't win today it's nearly mathematically impossible [to finish fourth]".

"We were playing quite compact and solid".

Worse than that, Mourinho's former employers Chelsea are 18 points ahead and on the brink of romping to a second title in three years. But the Europa League is a massive thing for us now, it's a trophy and it gives us qualification for the Champions League.
