Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic misses Arsenal clash

Manchester United will be without striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Nov. 19 after the Swede was booked in their win at Swansea City on Sunday.

Ibrahimovic picked up his fifth yellow card of the season for a 76th-minute foul on Leroy Fer, meaning he is suspended for the visit of Arsene Wenger's team after the international break.

That means he will be out of United's starting lineup for the first time in the Premier League after featuring in all 11 games so far.

Discussing his fifth yellow card of the season, Ibrahimovic told BBC Sport: "I thought we played rough in England? I play rough and I got a yellow card. What was it for? I don't know. Maybe I was too tired to hear why the referee gave it."

It was the only blot on an impressive afternoon for the United striker, who struck twice to help his team surge into a 3-0 lead by the 33rd minute.

The 35-year-old's goals ended a six-game barren run in the Premier League - - with his previous strike in the competition having come in the 2-1 home defeat against Manchester City on Sept. 10.

His first goal was a driven effort and his second came when he evaded Angel Rangel and clipped the ball in and he marked his success with a karate kick celebration.
