Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes the Premier League title race will involve six teams – although the Manchester United striker neglected to mention Tottenham.
Ibrahimovic has returned to Manchester United after his one-year contract expired in the summer. Have you seen his most ridiculous career statistics?
The striker is currently sidelined with a knee injury, but is back at Old Trafford and is expected to feature in the new year.
In an interview with ESPN FC, the 35-year-old discussed the title race, predicting that Everton could join the usual contenders, while forgetting to mention Tottenham.
“In the Premier League there are many [rivals], which are the top six let’s say, they will give a hard time for everybody,” he said.
“Like last season Chelsea was the best team, they won. You’ll still have Chelsea, you have Liverpool, I think Everton are not to underestimated because they have a great coach and they are investing a lot to win.
“And obviously you have Arsenal, [Manchester] City. So I think it will look like last year but this year the Red Devils will be on top.”
