It hasn’t been a dream start for Manchester United under Jose Mourinho, but the squad has been settling into the Premier League in the opening months.
Critics have been hard on Paul Pogba, who transferred to United for a record fee and hasn’t had consistent quality so far this season. At 23, Pogba is still developing into one of the world’s best players.
Watch Pogba silence the critics with this screamer:
Pogba cranks the ball with his right foot, and the ball lasers past the keeper for United’s first goal. Heading into this fixture, Pogba had previously scored only one other Premier League goal this season. And he’s not even fully healthy. Pogba took a knock to his thigh during a midweek Europa League loss to Fenerbahce, and his status was in doubt for the clash with Swansea.
United are hoping for more excitement like this from Pogba and the other splash signing, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The pair are locked into United’s starting lineup, one that has produced just three points in the team’s four previous Premier League fixtures.
