Ibrahimovic Brace Earns Manchester United Win Over West Brom

Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted a brace to help Manchester United defeat West Bromwich Albion 2-0 at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

The Swedish striker nodded Jesse Lingard‘s cross off the ground and past Ben Foster to give the Red Devils a 1-0 lead after just five minutes.

Ibrahimovic added his second when he dribbled toward the centre of the 18-yard box before hitting a deflected shot past Foster.

Marcos Rojo and Salomon Rondon both saw yellow in the 65th minute following unsportsmanlike behavior between the pair.

West Brom’s chances were well dealt with by United, including a Matteo Darmian block of a Chris Brunt shot in the 70th.

United are now level with fifth-place Tottenham with 30 points, although Spurs have a game in hand. They play Burnley on Sunday.
