Man United got back to winning ways with a comfortable win against struggling Swansea. Three goals in the first half all but won it.
United dominated from the start and Paul Pogba’s stunning drive put them ahead in the 15th minute. It was a shot which would’ve beaten any keeper. Next to score was Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose low drive only found the net because of the weak resistance from Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski in the 21st minute. That was his first goal in the league since September.
Pogba, Wayne Rooney and Ibrahimovic were all rediscovering their form to torment their weak opponents. They were controlling the match with embarassing ease, so it was a surprise whenever Swansea touched the ball. Ibrahimovic went on to score his second as he brushed aside Angel Rangel to clip the ball beyond Fabianski in the 33rd minute.
It was a surprise they didn’t go on to score more in the second half. Although United dominated, in the 69th minute, there were faint hopes of a comeback when Mike Van Der Hoorn headed in from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free-kick. Things might have been different had Ibrahimovic been punished by more than a yellow card for his apparent kick at Leroy Fer.
Jose Mourinho being in the stand didn’t affect them and they can now go into the international break on the back of a win. Next up for United is a home game against Arsenal on the 19th of November, which will be a very big game.
