Finally! Zlatan scored in the Premier League again!
And when he did, he didn't only score once, but twice.
His 399th and 400th club career goal lead Manchester United to an important victory with 1-3 away against Swansea.
- The first was a shot from distance. The second goal, I got almost free and could place it, Zlatan said about his goals afterwards.
EARLY BEAUTY BY POGBA
José Mourinho, who had to watch the game from the stands, put a rather strange starting eleven on the pitch which worried United fans a bit. But in the 15th minute they got the perfect start. A Swansea-defender headed the ball to Pogba who beautifully shot a great wrist shot up in the top right corner. 0-1 to Manchester United.
ZLAAATAN - FINALLY!
And only five minutes he finally scored. ZLATAN. He got the ball just outside the box, layed it up, and shot a low right foot shot, which Fabianski perhaps should have saved, but who cares? Zlatan finally scored again, his first goal in six Premier League games which actually was the 25 000th goal in the Premier League history. 0-2 to Manchester United.
This turned out to be the perfect half Zlatan, United and we needed. In the 33rd minute Zlatan scored again! Rooney, who played very well in the first half, counterattacked with Ibra on hos side. He passed Zlatan inside the box, he won a duel against Swansea-legs and easily placed the ball up high behind Fabianski. Zlatan's 400th career club goal, 0-3 to Manchester United at halftime, WONDERFUL!
SWANSEA SCORED THE FOURTH GOAL
Manchester United controlled the game in the second half and looked pretty happy with just passing around and protecting their 0-3-lead. A few half chances were created but it was Swansea who scored the fourth goal to 1-3. Gylfi Sigurdsson put a freekick cross into the box and Mike van der Hoorn headed to ball into the back of the net. 1-3. Not much more happened after that, Manchester United took an important win with 1-3.
