Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic 7/2 to be top goalscorer in the Premier League
Competition: Premier League
Market: Ibrahimovic to be top goalscorer
Odds: 7/2 @ William Hill
Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his fourth goal in three Premier League games in Boxing Day’s 3-1 win over Sunderland, and now finds himself in the Golden Boot reckoning after an outstanding run of form in all competitions recent weeks.
The former Sweden international has 12 goals in 17 Premier League games for the Red Devils this season, behind only one player in the scoring charts. Ibrahimovic is one goal shy of Chelsea’s Diego Costa, and has Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez breathing down his neck as the mid-point to the campaign approaches.
Many felt the veteran striker would suffer in his maiden Premier League season after his move from Paris Saint-Germain but Ibrahimovic has confounded his critics and looks capable of besting his competition in the charts. The 35-year-old has registered the most shots on target (31), and has the joint-most amount of goals outside the box.
His superior aerial ability and strength makes him a difficult player to physically beat in the box, and it’s lead to Ibrahimovic scoring the majority of his goals. But the Swede is also a technically talented striker who can score from anywhere on the pitch, and with the centre-forward in form – scoring and creating 14 goals in his last 10 in all competitions – Ibrahimovic is 7/2 with William Hill to be top goalscorer in the Premier League.
