In the meantime, City have opened up a eight point lead over their cross-town rivals, ahead of the Manchester derby this weekend. "It is something that we knew would happen now and again, that he needs to stop playing to become ready for harder work for prevention".
"So it will be interesting - they will maybe sit behind the ball a little bit more".
Ibrahimovic made his return from his knee injury against Newcastle United last month, and has since made three further appearances, against Basel, Brighton and Watford. "You have injuries and suspensions".
