Zlatan Ibrahimovic did what Zlatan Ibrahimovic does best on Sunday as he handed Man Utd the lead at Sunderland in a crucial game for Jose Mourinho’s men.
With the race to secure a spot in the top four in the Premier League heating up, United can’t afford to drop any more points between now and the end of the season as they look to close the gap on the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
After back-to-back draws at home, they need three points on Sunday against David Moyes’ struggling side, and Ibrahimovic broke the deadlock with this classy effort.

It was the Swede’s 28th goal of the season in 42 appearances in all competitions, as he continues to find the back of the net while his teammates struggle.
Mourinho bemoaned the absence of a prolific striker in his squad this week, and while Ibrahimovic isn’t exactly the player that he was talking about, the big Swede is doing a pretty good job at making up for not having a clinical out-and-out striker in the team.
