Swansea City 1-3 Manchester United as Pogba and Ibrahimovic first half goals secure three points, Manchester United visited Swansea City in what was absolute crucial premier league game for 20 time league champions on Sunday afternoon and with Mourinho in the stands because of suspension United finally turned up in a league game. They scored three goals in dominant first half display to pretty much secure three points in first half hour. Paul Poga scored the opening goal while Ibrahimovic added two more before the break to put United out of sight.
Ibrahimovic scored the 25,000th goal in Premier League history. Manchester United ended a run of four Premier League games without a win as they made light work of a feeble Swansea City side. United dominated from the start and were 3-0 up at half-time thanks to Paul Pogba’s stunning drive and two goals for Zlatan Ibrahimovic – his first in the league since September.
Mike van der Hoorn headed in for Swansea midway through the second half but there was no real danger for the visitors, whose manager Jose Mourinho watched from the stand because of a touchline ban. United climb up to sixth in the table, while a 10th Premier League match without victory means Swansea remain second from bottom.
The Swans’ dismal performance prompted boos from the home crowd and left manager Bob Bradley with just one point from his first four games in charge. But for Mourinho, a second win in eight league matches comes as welcome relief following a difficult few weeks.
