Make it 10.

Wayne Rooney played a cutting pass to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who put Ibrahimovic 1v1 with the keeper. The Big Swede pushed the goal past Adrian before the keeper carelessly clattered into the striker studs-first for what could’ve been a red card.

Ibrahimovic has also scored in the Premier League (7), Europa League (1), and Community Shield (1). Tuesday is his 20th match.
