Zlatan has gotten his goalscoring form back.
Tonight he scored twice when Man Utd beat West Ham 4-1 and advanced to the League Cup semifinal.
United played really well, Mkhitaryan and Martial was on fire.
- I played very well, like in the other matches, Zlatan said after the game.
IBRA-GOAL IN THE SECOND MINUTE
On Sunday's league game between the same teams West Ham scored in the second minute. Tonight it was Manchester United's turn. Rooney found Mkhitaryan with a great pass, Zlatan overlapped, Mkhitaryan backheeled it nicely to Zlatan who forced himself past a West Ham-defender and chipped it over Adrian. 1-0 to Man Utd.
Manchester United had everything in the first half hour and should have scored more goals. Zlatan missed three clear cut chances as well as Rooney and Martial. Instead West Ham created an attack in which De Gea made a mistake on. Payet shot and he should have caught it but let the rebound straight out to former United-player Fletcher, who put it in the back of the net. 1-1 at halftime.
AMAZING GOAL BY MARTIAL...
Manchester United started the second half as energetic as in the first and scored after a couple of minutes. Valencia beautifully backheeled it through to Mkhitaryan who passed diagonally back to Martial, who shot with power and placement up into the top left corner. 2-1 to Manchester United, Mkhitaryan's second assist of the game.
...AND ANOTHER ONE FIFTEEN MINUTES LATER
Man Utd didn't slow down after 2-1 and in the 62nd minute Anthony Martial scored his second of the game. Zlatan set it up with a perfect through pass to Valencia on the right hand side, the Colombian dinked a nice pass back to Martial in the box, and Martial tapped it in. Zlatan then scored his second of the night in extra time, from a meter from the goal line into an open net. 4-1 to Manchester United at fulltime and they are through to the semifinal in the League cup.
