For all his bravado and outrageous arrogance, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s season thus far has been dreadful.
He has 4 goals from 57 shots. Ahmed Musa has two from nine. He’s attempted over 35 shots in a row without finding the net.
If you compare his numbers to the big hitters in the division, it looks even worse for the man who routinely refers to himself as some sort of messiah.
If you don’t believe the stats, check out all of his “highlights” from United’s draw with Burnley.
With the Swede floundering, the Reds couldn’t find a way through and Burnley escaped with a brilliant point.
There has since been widespread calls for the former PSG man to be dropped with Marcus Rashford taking his place in the starting eleven.
Yet again we failed to take our chances so we're asking
Is it time to drop Zlatan Ibrahimovic?

It's time to drop Zlatan & start Rashford up front, man literally bottled A LOT of big chances.

Jose really needs to send that "no untouchables" message to the squad and start Rashford through the middle and drop Zlatan. Costing us pts.

Even Ibra’s most ardent supporters couldn’t defend the number nine if he failed to find the net again this Sunday against Swansea.
