#5 Zlatan Ibrahimovich - LA Galaxy

If we didn't put the big Swede's name first on the list, then it would be an utter disregard of the legend himself. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a revelation in the United States ever since his move from Manchester United. He dramatically scored a brace on his debut match coming on from the bench earning his side a comeback win.

Zlatan has since shown no signs of slowing down. He has scored 15 goals for the club in 16 appearances while also providing 5 assists. He has been heavily involved in his team's attacking play and has at times, carried the team singlehandedly in typical Zlatan fashion.

His exploits have led LA Galaxy onto the third spot at the time of writing in the Western Conference. They have every chance of going top before the end of the campaign if Zlatan continues to perform. Looking at the Swede's form, there have even been talks of a January return on loan to the Red Devils.
