The build up to Friday’s match was mostly about Paul Pogba, however, Zlatan Ibrahimovic stole the show during the first half of Manchester United’s match against Southampton.

The Swedish striker gave United the lead beyond the half hour mark off what appeared to be a routine Wayne Rooney cross. The former Paris Saint-Germain forward rose above defender Jose Fonte to give the home side the 1-0 lead.

You simply can’t give this guy an inch because he’ll take a mile.
