Manchester United Football Club are playing some simply brilliant football at the moment, as Jose Mourinho’s men seem to have clicked nicely into gear at a key part of the season. Now the wins are flowing, and hopefully, we’ll slowly start to climb that Premier League table.

This evening’s 2-0 victory away at West Bromwich Albion was a real team effort, but one man in particular played a huge role. That star is obviously Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the influential Swede epitomising everything good about the Red Devils on the night.

The 35-year-old held the play up wonderfully well and shirked off the WBA defenders with relative ease. The first goal he scored was an excellent team move which he finished off with a typically well-placed header, and his second strike was a bit of individual brilliance – which did get the help of a defelction on it’s way through.

As you’d imagine, social media was full of praise for Zlatan, and rightly so. We’ve compiled some of the best tweets for your viewing pleasure below.
