Swansea City ruined Louis van Gaal’s first game as Manchester United manager


Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson celebrates scoring his side's second goal of the game

A review of Saturday's action in the Barclays Premier League, starting with Swansea's shock win at Manchester United.

Swansea City ruined Louis van Gaal’s first game as Manchester United manager after claiming a shock 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.

Summer signing Gylfi Sigurdsson scored Swansea’s winner with just under 20 minutes remaining, having also teed up Ki Sung-yueng’s first-half opener before Wayne Rooney acrobatically levelled for United early in the second half.

United suffered a blow midway through the first half when debutant Jesse Lingard was forced off due to injury and was replaced by Adnan Januzaj.

Swansea took the lead with the first real chance of the game on 28 minutes when Sigurdsson rolled a pass across the edge of the area and Ki, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland, placed a low shot beyond David de Gea’s reach.

Louis van Gaal brought Nani on for Javier Hernandez at half-time, ditching his 3-5-2 formation in the process, and saw United equalise within eight minutes of the restart.

Juan Mata’s corner was helped on at the near post by Phil Jones and newly-appointed captain Rooney’s overhead kick from close range flew into the net.

Rooney struck the outside of the post with a 25-yard free-kick on 66 minutes before Swansea regained the lead on 72 minutes when Sigurdsson finished after Wayne Routledge’s mis-kicked shot dropped into his path.

United substitute Marouane Fellaini’s only contribution was to escape censure for flicking out an arm at Ki as Swansea comfortably held out to claim a first league win at Old Trafford after beating the Red Devils in the FA Cup third round last season.
