The main concern about Zlatan's entrance into English football was that he would not be able to cope physically. At 35, surely he would suffer, especially during the tough winter period where games are played every three days or so. How wrong the doubters were.
Zlatan has played most games of all Manchester United-players and in this game, only two days after the amazing Middlesbrough-comeback, he played another 90 minutes.
And even though you could tell there was some fatigue here and there, he continued to run, to be involved and constantly threaten the West Ham-defense.
And so in the 78th minute at 1-0 when the game was either to be won by Man Utd or taken back by West Ham, he stepped up like the killer goalscorer he is, yet again.
A little bit of luck gave the ball to him inside the box and snap, he just nailed the ball behind Randolph and United won the game.
He is in insane form at the moment, and even tough the entire United-team has improved massively in the last two months where they now have gone unbeaten in 13 games, the points simply wouldn't have been so many without Grande Ibra.
In the last twelve games he played, in which United has won ten and drawn twice, he has scored 13 goals and gotten three assists. And they said he wouldn't make it in England...
What a great time to be a Zlatan-supporter.
