Man United fans desperate for Ibrahimovic return after Lukaku performance vs Chelsea

Manchester United are now eight points behind English Premier League leaders Manchester City after a defeat away to Chelsea on Sunday.

In typically tense encounter, the Blues found their way to three points through Spanish striker Alvaro Morata, who headed superbly past David De Gea early in the second half.

United couldn’t muster a response with Jose Mourinho’s team selection and tactics stifling creativity in the final third, finding it especially difficult against one of the best defences in the country.

Summer signing Romelu Lukaku looked isolated leading the attack and failed to find himself in a position to have a chance across the 90 minutes.

The Belgian has now gone without a goal in seven United matches, last netting for the club in a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace in September.

That’s left fans furious with some even counting down the days to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return to fitness after his long-term injury. Is the Swedish legend the man that can inspire Lukaku to raise his game?
