Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic won’t be playing any part of this weekend’s meeting with Arsenal, but that doesn’t matter to manager Arsene Wenger.
The giant Swede misses out through suspension, but despite his obvious ability and status at the head of the United attack, Wenger has pinpointed another player as the man giving him nightmares ahead of Saturday’s game.
Arsenal travel back to Old Trafford for the first time since last season’s 3-2 defeat, in which youngster Marcus Rashford bagged himself two early goals.
And it is the teenage England international that Wenger has pinpointed as the Red Devils’ main threat over Ibrahimovic.
When quizzed about the impact that Ibrahimovic’s absence would have on the game, Wenger chose to point out the dangers possessed by the young Manchester native, GiveMeSport reports.
“Lets not forget that last year,” said Wenger.
“The guy who killed us was Rashford,” he said via the Daily Mirror.
However, Arsenal are the team in form this time around while United are struggling to even figure out their best starting line up.
Manager Jose Mourinho has also already been accused of mishandling the 19-year-old after failing to find the net in his previous 10 games for club and country.
