Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joked that there is more than one god at Manchester United these days.

Classic Zlatan. However, the 36-year-old has been dropping classic lines since his very first day at the club and Juan Mata has revealed the brilliant story of Ibrahimovic meeting the club's kit men.

Jose's love for traditional wingers though has sort of seen Mata's influence decline this season, especially since his form has dropped off a little.

One of the main topics of conversation was Mkhitaryan's relationship with Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Mourinho has confirmed that Matic is still carrying an injury since United's win over Watford last week but the Serb will start against the Premier League leaders. The charismatic Swede supposedly proclaimed himself as "God" to the kit men at the famous stadium, leaving them "shaking" with his bold and imposing demeanour - despite it obviously being said in jest.

"He's getting more and more games at Manchester [United], so if he wants to come he's going to come, but I would say it's like 50/50 at the moment".

He told local Armenian radio: "Zlatan has a strong temper".

"When I started to play with him in the national team, it was hard to still have him as my idol, but of course I looked up to him and tried to learn how he is, not as a football player, more as a person", he added.

"That's his reasoning. I understood it, because he'd told me what he was going to do before the change".

It's an absolutely blockbuster Manchester Derby taking place this Sunday, and naturally this fixture is dominating global football headlines today.

"Firstly, that I had no kind of personal problem with him, no matter what the press said".

Zlatan, however, is set to return to action after missing a couple of matches against Arsenal and CSKA Moscow.
