His goal-tally also puts him level with Inter's duo of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez but Ibrahimovic has played less than half the games than his competitors.

The former Manchester United forward has netted in nine straight starts in a top-five league for the first time in his two-decade-long career.

He also became the first player in Milan to score many goals in eight games for Milan since Marco Van Basten in the 1992-93 season.

Zlatan was asked if the Rossoneri can win the Scudetto after the game against Cagliari and he told Sky:

“I believe in me, I believe in Zlatan.”

Milan's next game is against fellow title contenders Atalanta before playing Inter in the Coppa Italia.
