Cape Town - Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he is not done scoring goals for Manchester United after hitting the back of the net for the 20th time this season in a 3-0 victory over Leicester City on Sunday.

The 35-year-old, who scored the second goal as the Red Devils put the Foxes to the sword, became the first United player to score 20 goals in a single season since Robin van Persie in the 2013-14 campaign.

The former Sweden captain insists he has not yet reached his target for the season.

Ibrahimovic told reporters: "I have a target in my head but I will not say it. We are not there yet! "This is something I have been doing every year, and this is nothing new for me... I keep producing.

"I have 20 and seven assists, so the statistics so far are the same region as other years except for last year because that was a crazy year.

"I still produce and do my best and I get a lot of help from my team-mates. I know there were many people saying I would not even score 20, but that is not what I focus on.

"For me the main objective is to help my team win, do the best and afterwards we will see what happens. As for the 20, we have some games left so hopefully it will become more."

Meanwhile, United will face Watford on Saturday as they look to climb the Premiership table.

Kick off is at 17:00.
