Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is world-class and that he could hurt Liverpool on Sunday.
The big Swede has been in spectacular form at Old Trafford, and will be looking to add to his current tally of 13 Premier League goals when Jurgen Klopp’s men arrive at Old Trafford.
Ibrahimovic was unable to find the back of the net at Anfield last October when he suffered one of the worst goal-scoring droughts of his senior career, but he’s been undroppable in recent times.
Speaking prior to the game, Carragher admits he could have a big impact against Liverpool.
“Before Christmas, I described Zlatan as being the best signing of 2016,” he said.
“He has won 29 major honours in his career and, the way he is performing, you can see him taking that figure beyond 30 before his time in Manchester is over.
“Yet his immediate target is Liverpool. Now when I sit down to watch him I understand what all the fuss is about.
“Now, unlike in 2001, I’m worried about everything he can do.”
Manchester United sit sixth ahead of their clash with Liverpool, nine points behind leaders Chelsea and a win against Liverpool will be a massive statement of intent.
After a shaky start to the season, Jose Mourinho has steadied the ship and has done an excellent job of closing the gap on the top four, but a win on Sunday could be enough to take the club to the next level moving forward.
