Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the all-important equaliser for Manchester United as they rescued a late 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Old Trafford, but the Swedish superstar says ‘simple mistakes’ cost his team a further two points.
The goal was enough to extend United’s unbeaten run to 12 games, but Ibrahimovic clearly felt United should have also extended their winning run to 10 games too.
Liverpool, meanwhile are still without a win in 2017, despite taking a first-half lead through a James Milner penalty.
United dominated the second half after a poor opening 45 minutes, but had to wait until the dying stages of the game for Ibrahimovic to come up with his crucial goal and despite his heroics, the Swede said his side were disappointed with the result.
‘We get one point, but we were not on the top of our game,’ Ibrahimovic told Sky Sports.
‘It was a hard fight, we were 1-0 down and we chased and, at the end, we got the equaliser.
‘We did simple mistakes. We were not feeling comfortable under the pressure of the opponent and I think we played the wrong way.
‘If we would have played like we did in the second half in the first half it would have been a different game.
‘We were more direct (in the second half). We did too many mistakes in our build-up (in the first half).’
Despite his unhappiness with the result, Ibrahimovic has now scored 14 league goals in 20 Premier League games.
