Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named Premier League player of the month for December.
The former Sweden international turned 35 in October but has been revitalised at Old Trafford, scoring 12 goals in 12 appearances in the final two months of 2016.
He began December with a lobbed strike in a 1-1 draw at Everton and scored a further five Premier League goals as United embarked on a six-game winning streak in the league.
Ibrahimovic's first strike at The Hawthorns was nominated for Carling Goal of the Month, while he provided the assist for Henrikh Mkhitaryan's goal against Sunderland, which won the award.
"I am playing in a great team with great team-mates, a great coach and at a great club," he said.
Ibrahimovic will be hoping to add to his tally when Manchester United host Liverpool as part of Merseyside v Manchester, live on Sky Sports 1HD on Sunday.
