LA Galaxy want to set a new record... with Zlatan
The Swedish striker has played a big part in the great start Galaxy are enjoying. He's scored in the last four games - now, they aim to break a club victories record.
With the 2-1 victory over Houston Dynamo in week 8 of the MLS, Los Angeles Galaxy brought up their fifth consecutive victory in seven games. Much of that has been down to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's return from injury that left him out two games. The Swede has ensured the team is on the cusp of making club history - the last time they recorded five straight wins was back in 2014.
Zlatan picked up an ankle injury after scoring the winner against Chicago Fire on the opening day. That forced him to watch the subsequent games against FC Dallas and Minnesota from the bench, but since making his comeback, he has scored in all of the last four games.
Ibrahimovic and Galaxy will be seeking their sixth consecutive victory and seventh of the season away at Minnesota on Wednesday. A win would take them past the club's best run of results set in 2014 when they won five matches in a row.
Looking back at that 2014 season
From August to September 2014, LA Galaxy were almost unstoppable as they recorded wins against Colorado Rapids (3-4), Vancouver Whitecaps (2-0), DC United (4-1), Chivas USA (0-3) and the Rapids ( 6-0). It was during their visit to Montreal that Frank Klopas' team dropped points, after being held to a 2-2 draw at Saputo Stadium. That team did go onto to be crowned MLS champions that year, maybe that's an omen for Zlatan and Galaxy this time around...
