Manchester United fans slam Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s performance vs Burnley

by Marwan Harraz

Jose Mourinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic picked up most of the blame for Manchester United’s 2-2 draw vs Burnley in the Premier League.

The Red Devils found themselves two goals down at half time thanks to some poor defending from set-pieces once more and a stunning free-kick.

United managed to eventually turn things around through substitute Jesse Lingard but an incredibly sloppy first half left fans fuming.

Ibrahimovic was hooked at half time and it was the Englishman who scored a brace to rescue Mourinho and his side.

Fans criticised the manager’s decision to select the Swede ahead of Lingard and it’s fair to say the in form player must be wondering the same.



Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his first Premier League start of the campaign and must’ve been relieved that he was taken off by his manager after struggling in the first half.

Burnley outfoxed the Red Devils and took advantage of the former PSG man’s lack of mobility in the attacking midfield area.

Ibrahimovic started in behind Romelu Lukaku with Jose perhaps trying to partner the two successfully in order to add more goals to United’s game.

However, the decision proved costly and Zlatan was nowhere near match fit to really make any kind of impact on the match.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata represent the club’s attacking midfield options but it was the powerful striker who started in the position instead.

Although his players let him down, Mourinho will surely be reflecting on his own decision making and will hope to quickly put a stop to the Red Devils’ season unravelling.
