After a much-heralded arrival to Old Trafford, the much traveled Zlatan Ibrahimovic has seen his form dip drastically in recent weeks. The Swede began with a bang, but has fizzled off and is in bit of a goal-drought since.
Against Liverpool, the forward was entrusted with leading the attack as the lone striker in a defensive set-up and needless to say the big striker failed to impress.
He squandered off United’s best chance in the match in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool. Heading the free header back across the goal, instead of burying the ball into the net.
This wastefulness, and his recent performances have not gone down well with the fans on the internet, who are clamoring for the inclusion of some youth in the team, to play Rashford or Martial in place of the ponytailed striker.
Zlatan is on the wrong side of the thirties, and if he does not pick up his performances with some goals soon, it would be no surprise to see him joining club legend Wayne Rooney on the bench.
Check out the reactions below!
Should we be worried that Jose appears reluctant to sub or drop Zlatan, even when he isn't giving much / missing chances? #MUFC

Europa league next looking forward to seeing RvP return at OT and also I think it's time for Ibra to be dropped upfront for Rashford. #MUFC

Play Martial, Carrick, Mkhitaryan and Shaw against Chelsea. Drop Zlatan. And we will win

I wonder what will happen before Mourinho decides to drop Zlatan for a game or two. The dude is 35 and can't give you 90mins in every game

Would drop Zlatan for the next match and try Rashford up front with Mkhi, Mata and Martial behind him. #MUFC

Zlatan was dreadful today. Just not good at all. Either drop him or give him better outside support

@Alex94_mufc in all honesty I would drop Zlatan next game. Play Rashford Martial Mkhi with a midfield 3 of Pogba Mata Herrera
