Musa Plans for FA Community Shield Victory Party…Eager to down Mourinho's United

Ibrahimovic is set to turn 35 years old in October, but the Swede is showing no sign of letting age catch up with him as Manchester United bank on him to produce a special season.

The game marked Mourinho's first return to Wembley since his Chelsea side were beaten comprehensively by Arsenal in the Community Shield 12 months ago, but his new team enjoyed the better of the play in the opening exchanges.

They have made some changes to the squad as they have brought in a new striker from CSKA Moscow, Ahmed Musa for a contract until 2020.

Having otherwise been nearly completely anonymous, the Swedish striker made his mark by towering above Wes Morgan and heading an Antonio Valencia cross beyond Schmeichel for 2-1. I'm not satisfied until I win everything - that is what we play for, I play to win.

"Wherever I came, they also play to win". I'm used to winning trophies - I didn't come here to waste time.

The tempo of the game dropped as both managers made use of their six permitted substitutions, but Ibrahimovic nearly prodded United back in front after a spell of sustained pressure, with Drinkwater hooking clear from in front of his own goal after the Swede stabbed the ball past Schmeichel. Beating Wes Morgan in the air, Ibrahimovic planted a downward header against the post and the ball rebounded over the line.

The Dutchman had a very disappointing first season at Manchester United last term and is battling for his future under Mourinho.

But the Premier League champions fought back and Jamie Vardy took advantage of sloppy passing from Marouane Fellaini to make it 1-1 in the 52nd minute.

But the goal owed nearly everything to a mistake by Fellaini, whose under-hit back-pass enabled Vardy to nip in, round David de Gea, and score. However, his pass to goalkeeper David de Gea was underhit, allowing the alert Vardy to round De Gea and shoot in left-footed from an acute angle.

The Sweden worldwide striker was playing in his first competitive match for United and, similar to his friendly debut for against Galatasaray eight days earlier, he scored.

Musa missed a great chance - a header from five meters out - before Ibrahimovic's goal.

Mata was then taken off in the closing moments and appeared to have a heated debate with Mourinho, having been withdrawn less than half an hour after his introduction.

United are about to spend around £100 million on Paul Pogba, who has been given permission by Juventus to undergo a medical with his former club.

"I have my career, he has his career", Mourinho said, in comments published by several British newspapers on Sunday. It remains to see whether they can reproduce their stunning performance once again this season. "It's always important to start with a trophy".
