Ibrahimovic smacks Bournemouth defender Mings with nasty elbow

He didn't realise that he had already booked Surman, so belatedly approached him in the centre circle to issue the red card. He's either seen it, or he hasn't.

Ibrahimovic caught Mings with his elbow late in the first half, moments after the Bournemouth defender appeared to stamp on the Swede's head with his left foot as he jumped over him. Surely 3 match bans must follow.

United went in level at 1-1 with Bournemouth at the break, and a series of controversial incidents marred the end of the first period as Andrew Surman was sent off at Old Trafford.

A red card was then brandished, somewhat sheepishly, as Ibrahimovic and Mings remained on the field for the second half.

Gary Neville, who was on co-commentary duty, described Ming as a "coward" while echoing his colleagues' lack of surprise at Ibrahimovic's reaction. Both of them should be off. I don't like saying that about referees but he has.

"Even when you're not a kid", added Henry. If someone did it to me, unfortunately you're gonna try to do something back to the man, ' the Frenchman said.

United missed a host a chances to extend their 1-0 lead handed to them by Marcos Rojo before a foul by Phil Jones on Benik Afobe allowed former United forward Joshua King to equalise from the spot. A cross was hung up at the back post and as the Mings and Ibrahimovic chose to contest the ball, the 35-year-old landed an elbow into the face of Mings.
