Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has revealed tantalizing details of his burgeoning partnership with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Pogba and Ibrahimovic began as substitutes for the FA Cup fifth round fixture against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park Sunday, but Mourinho brought both off the bench and Pogba set up Ibrahimovic's winner with a beautiful long pass.

"I try to help the team as much as possible. When I see [Ibrahimovic's] movement I can pass him the ball.

"We try all the time, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but that is what we are trying to do. Today it worked and I am happy with that."
