“Zlatan is confident, but Lukaku is Number One”- Neville.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville says Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not a threat to Romelu Lukaku as the Belgian continues to struggle for goals.The former Everton forward began his United career with 11 goals in his first 10 games, but has only managed the just a goal in his last 11 appearances and missed a golden chance during the second half of the 4-2 win over Watford on Tuesday.Former United defender Rio Ferdinand said this week that Lukaku is struggling to deal with the added pressure of competing with Ibrahimovic.But fellow ex-United defender Neville told Sky Sports: “I don’t see Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a threat to Lukaku at all but as a supplement. The only way Ibrahimovic can become number one is if the aura of Zlatan gets to Lukaku.“Zlatan is confident but Lukaku is number one, the fans and the manager believe in him and if he does have any demons then he needs to clear them from his mind.”Neville feels Lukaku “has to deliver” in United’s upcoming Premier League clashes against Arsenal and Manchester City.“He was brought in to score goals in the games which United were drawing last season. However, it is in the big matches where they now need him most. If there is a way to get at Arsenal and Manchester City then it is by really going at their defences,” He added.
