Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was greeted by an impersonator during his side's impressive first-half display against champions Leicester.

The Swedish striker exchanged words with the lookalike before jokingly palming off the pitch invader following one of United's four first-half goals.

Ibrahimovic's doppelganger, dressed in all black, found a way of evading Old Trafford's security staff before making his way to United's No 9.

He was then taken down to the floor by an onrushing steward after trespassing onto the pitch during the Premier League fixture.

Ibrahimovic's lookalike donned similar facial hair to the former PSG man and also sported a ponytail.

Jose Mourinho's side raced into a four-goal lead before the half-time break with Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba all getting on the scoresheet.
Ibrahimovic's usual strike partner Wayne Rooney was demoted to the bench in a bold move by Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician chose to deploy Ibrahimovic as a lone striker with Rashford, Mata and Jesse Lingard supplying support for their iconic team-mate.

The 34-year-old veteran has scored four Premier League goals so far this season.
