Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Man United back in the hunt for a Champions League place

LEICESTER — Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims Manchester United have been “our own enemy” this season after heralding Sunday’s 3-0 victory over struggling champions Leicester City as the catalyst for a surge into the Premier League’s top four between now and the end of the campaign.

Despite an unbeaten run in the league stretching back to the 4-0 defeat at Chelsea in October, United have now been locked in sixth position for 64 days, having failed to take advantage of opportunities to close the gap on the Champions League places.

Jose Mourinho’s team have recorded nine draws in the league — six of them at Old Trafford — and Ibrahimovic said those stalemates have led to United being off the pace.

But with the gap to fourth-placed Arsenal now just two points, Ibrahimovic believes United can now launch a sustained push for the top four.
