Romelu Lukaku 'blasted United teammates' following defeat to Chelsea

Romelu Lukaku 'blasted United teammates' following defeat to Chelsea

But he insists he is relishing the prospect and hopes Ibrahimovic can help United real in Pep Guardiola's rampant City side, who are averaging 3.45 goals per game.

Ibrahimovic is expected to return to action during United's hectic Christmas schedule.

Like Lukaku this season, Ibra was an ever-present in Jose Mourinho's starting XI last term before cruciate knee ligament damage brought his first season in England to an abrupt end. Ibrahimovic is slated to come back relatively soon, either late next month, or early in the month after that.

"It (Ibrahimovic's return) motivates me really, because he's another good player to add to the squad", Lukaku told Sky Sports News.

"When you face a team like us it's hard for opponents", Lukaku concluded. "Him (Ibrahimovic) coming back will help us chase Manchester City".

That's based on the fact Mourinho didn't let him take a penalty - and that Lukaku has missed several chances in big games, and seen his goal scoring record dry up in recent weeks - when United have dropped points to boot. "Ibrahimovic coming back will help us chase Manchester City".

The Manchester United striker scored twice as Roberto Martinez's side were held 3-3 in Friday's friendly, his second salvaging the draw after Hirving Lozano's four-minute double put Mexico ahead. The Swede said that United's £75 million addition from Everton this past summer will just make his life easier.

Now, it seems that when last season's star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back, Mourinho will consider his options and it seems that Lukaku should be anxious. Have YOUR say in the comments box below!
