The Swede scored a stoppage-time penalty to salvage a 1-1 draw, cancelling out Phil Jagielka’s first-half strike and taking his goals tally for the season to 27.

The result means United have won just six of their 16 Premier League home games this season, drawing nine and losing once, while scoring just 21 goals. Nine teams have taken more points at home than the 27 United have managed.
United lost further ground on Liverpool and Manchester City in the race for the top four and their hopes of securing Champions League football for next season look increasingly likely to hinge on what happens in the Europa League.

A frustrated Ibrahimovic - who is currently deliberating on whether to take up an option to stay for a further 12 months - made it clear he is not impressed with United’s current trajectory.

“A lot of things have to be settled,” Ibrahimovic told MUTV after the game. “It’s not like I’m 20 and I have another five or 10 years.

“Probably I have one, two, three years so everything depends on what you want and what the club wants, what the vision of the club is because I said from day one I didn’t come here to waste time, I came here to win.

“If you want to win bigger then you have to create bigger.
“I came here without the Champions League. I came here with the team as it was. It was not a team that was favourite to win.

“I still came. I came to help. I came to do what I am able to do. To make it better. To bring the team to higher views so let’s see what happens.”
