Manchester: Jose Mourinho hailed Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the veteran striker scored twice to secure Manchester United a fourth consecutive victory with a 2-0 win at West Brom.

The United manager sang the praises of Ibrahimovic after he struck early in each half as United moved alongside fifth-placed Tottenham on 30 points in the Premier League table.

"He is doing amazingly well, even in the period when he was not scoring goals," said Mourinho. "He is important to us for more reasons than the goals but in the last two matches he has scored three goals and got us six points in two away matches which is important.

"I was expecting him to have the impact he has had this season because I knew the reasons he was coming here. He was not coming for the money or prestige, he was coming to play in the best league in the world," Mourinho added.
