Zlatan's Late Minute Strike Salvaged A Point For Man United In A Crunch Tie With Liverpool

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored arguably his most important goal for Manchester United so far as he sent Old Trafford into wild noise with a late equaliser in a thrilling Premier League clash against bitter rivals, Liverpool on Sunday.

United having dominated the game in the early minutes of the match were cut short of the flow with a Paul Pogba's handball in the 18 yard box resulting in a penalty James Milner superbly converted in the 27th minute to silence the cheering home crowd as Jurgen Klopp’s men looked to be coasting to their first league win over United in six meetings.

Jose Mourinho swung to action the second half, throwing on captain Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini and the Red Devils were rewarded for their unrelenting pressure when the unstoppable Ibrahimovic nodded in off the crossbar from close range to ensure a share of the spoils.

The draw lifted Liverpool into third spot, alongside second-placed Tottenham on 45 points – seven adrift of leaders Chelsea, while United remain sixth on 40 points.
