4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on fire
The imperious Swede has been in fine form ever since his arrival at Old Trafford. The 35-year old has scored 24 goals already in all competitions in his debut campaign in England. He is already United’s top goalscorer in all competitions across the last two years despite only being at the club for seven months.
In Ibrahimovic, United have finally found their new Eric Cantona. The towering centre-forward has been United’s savior this season, often scoring important goals at crucial times. His goals have won United 11 points in the league this season, the most by any player.
He has been enjoying a great week, having scored a hat-trick against St. Etienne on Thursday. He then came on to score the winner against Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup on Sunday.
Southampton will be wary of the Swedish striker when the two sides meet on Sunday. The Saints already know how deadly Zlatan can be. Ibrahimovic scored a brace the last time the teams met. And he has great memories of the Wembley Stadium, having scored the winner in the Community Shield win over Leicester.
Southampton defenders will have to be on their heels and at their very best to stop Ibrahimovic. Otherwise he could single-handedly win the game for United.
