Los Angeles (9-5-1) has won two straight after losing four in a row. Kansas City (3-5-5) has only won once in its last nine games.

Favio Álvarez scored his first MLS goal in the 55th minute, heading in Ibrahimovic's header across the goal.

Ibrahimovic, in his first game back following a two-game suspension, chested Uriel Antuna's pass on a breakaway and sent it off the hands of goalkeeper Tim Melia for his first goal since May 4.

Sporting's best scoring chance came in the 62nd minute when Felipe Gutierrez's header of a corner kick hit the crossbar.
