Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has backed teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic to soon end his scoring drought and be back amongst the goals.

Ibrahimovic, 35, has gone six league games without a goal for United – his longest goalless run in domestic league football since 2007.

He had 12 shots on goal in the Red Devils' 0-0 draw with Burnley at Old Trafford on 29 October but was frustrated by Clarets goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who made a string of brilliant saves to deny the hosts.

Herrera refused to single out Ibrahimovic for missing chances and said the whole team was guilty of profligacy in front of the goal.

"I think if one player can get back and pass this moment it's [Ibrahimovic] because of his attitude, his character, the way he works," the Spain international was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"I have no doubt he is going to score a lot of goals for us. But it is not only him – we have missed a lot of chances, not only him.

"He is giving us a lot of things for the team. Some of the chances we created came because of him, so we cannot tell him anything.

"We have to say that we have one of the best strikers in the world and his attitude, his character, is top."

The Burnley result extended United's winless run in the league to four matches and leaves the club eight points behind leaders Manchester City after 10 fixtures.

Herrera said the Red Devils were unlucky not to clinch all three points against Burnley after dominating at Old Trafford.

"The dressing room was completely disappointed because of the way we played," he said.

"Today there are no words. I think we have to get the heads up because we have done a lot of good things.

"We controlled the game for 90 minutes. Not to score a goal was unbelievable."
