London: Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has performed so well that he has made himself virtually undroppable this season according to manager Jose Mourinho. Ibrahimovic has also played in more matches than any of United’s other strikers this season, featuring in 24 of their 26 games so far, and will start up front in the Premier League clash with in-form West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

"Is it almost impossible to leave him out? Yes, it is," said Mourinho at the eve of match press conference yesterday. "As a striker he is one of the impossible positions where you cannot hide. He is phenomenal and plays again and then one week to rest.

"I am not surprised at all. I knew from the physical point of view he could resist but obviously he cannot play 60 matches."

Mourinho said he would need to rest him but he was such an integral part of the side it was hard to omit him.

"I must give him a rest. I must leave him out a game," said Mourinho.
