Given how well Lukaku has started and with Zlatan to return, would it be feasible to have Zlatan at 10 for fee games. With his superlative technique i am sure he will slot in perfectly. He is a combination of Fellaini with his physicality and Mkhitaryan with his finesse. I say he could be lethal with pace around him.

My only concern is, would Zlatan disrupt the rhythm of the team?
Would he accept being second fiddle to Lukaku and even start on the bench more often.

The 10 needs to be able to make up the numbers in cm ibra won't do that.
To play ibra and lukaku it would have to be 2 up top with ibra as the second striker.

Is a 3-5-2 a possibility? We have the perfect wide men for it. Valencia and Young. Jones, Lindelof and Bailly? Pogba and Matic with Mikhitaryan linking midfield and attack. Would mean no Rash or Martial. I'm not sure I'd like that.

I worry that he will be shoehorned in irrespective of how we are playing. As an impact sub, starter when Lukaku is rested, he has a role but I don't see a front 2 working.

I thought he might have some sort of coaching role tagged on at some point. Zlatan definitely has a role to play but it's going to be more from the bench for height and experience or when Lukaku is injured or rested.

He surely has to be a back up, plan b.

To be there as an alternative to Lukaku on days when it's either not going his way or when he is need of a rest. Or if we are chasing a game, last 10 mins, stick him up top with lukaku and fellaini. See who wins the headers then?

That'd be a nightmare trio for any backline with 10 minutes to go and long balls being pumped up.

In typical situations Zlatan can sub in for Lukaku with a lead, or if we're losing/ tied and the opposition is sitting back, let both of them loose in the box for crosses. He will start the occasional match, no doubt, but I think how obviously better the entire team plays without him in the lineup means that he'll be a situational player, like Chicharito was at times in his career. This assumes no serious injuries. I like my chances with a 1-1 match in the 89th minute with a corner for which we have in the box Pogba, Jones, Bailly, Matic, Fellaini, Rashford, Lukaku and Zlatan.

Truth is teams are now realizing that pushing up against our counterattack is tantamount to suicide. We're going to see more and more park the bus defenses, and for that I think Zlatan will be a perfect sub.

Is that "The Sydney"?
