Zlatan Ibrahimovic Scores Stunning Perfect Hat-Trick In LA Derby

The Swedish striker has been embroiled in a feud Carlos Vela, but the 37-year-old superstar proved he's as good as his word by delivering a remarkable showing in the MLS.

Galaxy entertained Los Angeles FC with the visitors taking an early lead through - you guessed it - Vela. He opened the scoring from the spot which lit a fire under Ibrahimovic, who returned with three unanswered goals.

He leveled just four minutes after with a superb karate-esque strike from the edge of the box. He then put his side in front just before the hour mark with a towering header.

The ex-Manchester United man completed his hat-trick in the 70th minute with a long-range hit.

Vela pulled one back deep, deep into stoppage time to make it 3-2 to Galaxy.

"When you play against a rival like that, in a full stadium, I get pumped. I get adrenaline. This is considered to be the biggest game in the league and I show up in the biggest games," Ibrahimovic said after the game.

"I am in play-off mode every day."

Following the victory, Ibrahimovic posted a typically brilliant message on social media.
