Manchester United continued their charge towards a top-four finish with a hard-fought victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League last night, which secured a third consecutive victory and remained unbeaten for the ninth game in a row across all competitions.
One man has been crucial to the Red Devils’ resurgence during that run, as Manchester United finally seem to be getting the best out of veteran forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic- who scored the late winner for Jose Mourinho’s side at Selhurst Park.

Ibrahimovic’s sensational run of form includes braces against West Ham and Swansea City, whilst last weekend’s victory over Tottenham Hotspur was only the second match during that run where he didn’t find the net- and he secured an assist in the other one!
Now standing on 14 goals for the season in all competitions this term, Ibrahimovic is showing to be a world-class player yet again and his growing relationship on the field with Paul Pogba could be the catalyst to success.
