Form of 35-year-old Man Utd striker means he is set to start third match in six days against West Brom

Jose Mourinho believes it is nigh-on impossible to omit Zlatan Ibrahimovic from his starting XI for Saturday's match at West Bromwich Albion despite the need for rest as the festive fixture schedule intensifies. 

"He's a striker and sometimes, in other positions, you can hide yourself a little bit more and protect yourself with experience and position," Mourinho told manutd.com.

"As a striker, I think it's one of the impossible positions where you can hide. He's doing phenomenal and tomorrow he's going to play again, and then one week to rest."
