Lukaku struggling with Ibrahimovic pressure at Man United, says Ferdinand

GETTYRomelu Lukaku has only scored one goal in his last 11 games

However, according to pundit and former United player Gary Neville, this is a very important part of the season where the pressure is very high on the players and even the manager, "This is a critical stage of the season".

Lukaku's powerful strike against Newcastle United 12 days ago is all he has to show in terms of goals in his last 11 outings, having previously netted 11 times in his first 10 games for the club. But a seven-game goal drought followed, and he's only scored once since the November worldwide break.

Wright said on the Premier League Today programme when asked if Ibrahimovic could replace Lukaku in the team: "When you look at the support Mourinho has given to Romelu Lukaku, I don't think he is going to leave him out".

Lukaku has 12 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions this season for Manchester United.

Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho joked after Tuesday night's win at Watford that the Belgium global "needs a big contract" from one of the big firms to have his man back in the scoring groove once more.

With Manchester United playing Arsenal on Saturday in a crucial clash for both teams, especially with both teams needing a win, things could take a turn for the ugly.

Ibrahimovic returned from a seven-month layoff earlier this month and has made four substitute appearances as he works his way back to full fitness.

In a column for Sky Sports on Thursday morning, Neville wrote that he sees Ibrahimovic not as "a threat to Lukaku", but rather "as a supplement".

"Lukaku gets more chances created for him but he's also under more pressure, so misses get scrutinised, and rightly so, but these are the games where he can silence his critics", he wrote.

"The only way Ibrahimovic can become number one is if the aura of Zlatan gets to Lukaku". "At Old Trafford, against Manchester City, they will be fully behind him".
