WATCH: Lingard finds red-hot Zlatan to put Man Utd up early

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on fire.

It’s his 15th goal in 25 appearances for United, and the sixth in his last six Premier League matches.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho said he’d give Ibrahimovic a week off following this match. It’s going to be hard to keep him away (though a potentially red card-worthy high hit¬†could’ve done the job minutes later. Yellow from referee Anthony Taylor).
