Ibrahimovic was charged with elbowing Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings in the match at Old Trafford. The Swede had said after the match that Mings had “jumped into” his elbow.

He will miss Monday night’s FA Cup quarterfinal at Chelsea and Premier League games against Middlesbrough and West Brom. He is still available for the Europa League tie against Russia’s Rostov on Thursday.
