Jamie Carragher: Man United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic is unplayable in the air

Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is unplayable in the air.

The Swede scored both goals in Man United’s 2-0 victory over Southampton at Old Trafford on Friday night.

He found the opener after he rose above Jove Fonte and placed a powerful header past Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

Speaking about his ability, Carragher insists Ibrahimovic is dominating defenders in England.

“With Zlatan now, you could be talking about him being unplayable in the air,” he said.

“You’re thinking Duncan Ferguson in the past and Andy Carroll now. He has beaten Wes Morgan and Jose Fonte who are two big huge imposing centre-halves. He’s completely dominated both in the air.”

Ibrahimovic has been in fine form since his free transfer to from Paris Saint-Germain this summer and has taken his tally to three goals in two Premier League appearances.

He has helped his side stay at the top of the table getting the club off to the perfect start with two successive wins at the start of the 2016/17 campaign.

There is no doubting his ability and hopes are he can keep his record alive against Hull City next weekend.
