Speaking to Sky Sports after grabbing a brace in Man United 2-0 away win against West Brom, the Swedish ex-international said there is little sign of him slowing down.

He said: "The older I get, the better I get, like red wine. You like red wine? I'm a perfect example of that.

"I'm settling in. I feel happy, I feel good. Even if I'm 35, in my mind I'm 20. I think I could play also at 50, but it's not down to me.

"The only thing that surprises me [about the Premier League] is that the game is not controlled.

"Back and front, back and front, the rhythm is high but this is how the game is and you have to adapt your body to it. I have played in different championships in different countries and always adapted."

Ibrahimovic has made a strong impact since his arrival at Old Trafford over the summer.

His brace against West Brom took his tally to 16 goals since his debut in the Community Shield.
