​Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has named his two favourite strikers - other than himself - in the Premier League this season.

The enigmatic Swede has 16 league goals to his name so far this campaign, bettered only by four other players.

And Ibrahimovic has named the two strikers he believes worthy of a mention, before making sure to add some trademark self-confidence.

"I like a striker who makes a difference," he told ​BT Sport. "Lukaku is strong, he is more the physical player that scores a lot of goals. Aguero is good.”


Asked why he did not choose himself, he said: "Lions, they don’t compare themselves with humans.”

Ibrahimovic scored an injury time penalty as United rescued a late point against Everton on Tuesday night, but he has admitted he is feeling frustration at the level of pressure on him to perform.

“When you are part of the team you want to feel like you are doing something for the team," the 35-year-old said. “At this moment I haven’t been able to do something, I have a lot of responsibility and I feel the pressure on myself. I failed in some way that I didn’t win the game. That’s me - that’s only me.

“I am a lion. If you come up among lions you should expect to get attacked by lions. If you are a cat, you will run away but if you are a lion you will stay among the other lions.

"I came here to win. I have been winning but if you want to win bigger you have to create bigger. The table does not lie. The team is where it is because it is what it is."
