The former Paris Saint-Germain striker has not scored in six Premier League games, most recently failing to score in the goalless draw at home to Burnley on Saturday.

Manchester United have not won in four games and Wilkins believes the stalemate at Old Trafford was a setback in Jose Mourinho’s pursuit of the Premier League title, with Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea all winning.

Speaking on Sky Sport, Wilkins said: “Zlatan looks like he’s suffering from a lack of confidence.

“He doesn’t look as if he’s very confident when he’s in on goal. There was a fantastic give-and-go that he did with Paul Pogba (against Burnley) and I thought if he’d just rip through the ball then he must score.

“But he didn’t. He tried to side-foot it and it went for a corner-kick. At the start of the season he was smashing those in.

“He scored 52 in 50 games last year. He’s a phenomenal centre-forward and I was delighted when United bought him.

“But the Premier League is not an easy division. We have seen the coaches saying it – even Pep Guardiola – that every game is different.

“At Old Trafford, against Burnley, United would be expected to take three points. They’ve dropped further behind the big boys and it’s a setback. It wasn’t the best result.”
