ZLATAN Ibrahimovic scored twice and Paul Pogba excelled in his first game back at Manchester United as the team’s high-profile offseason signings starred in a 2-0 win over Southampton in the Premier League.
The good times appear to be back at Old Trafford, with Ibrahimovic’s towering header in the 36th minute from a Wayne Rooney’s right wing cross. Zlatan then scored a penalty in the 52nd minute after Luke Shaw was felled by Jordi Clasie in the box after a beautiful exchange with Juan Mata earning United a second straight victory to open the league season.
Ibrahimovic has already scored three league goals, to complement his winner in the Community Shield against Leicester. Also pleasing to United manager Jose Mourinho will be the way Pogba slotted into the side in his first appearance since a world-record £89m transfer, displaying his range of tricks, vision and box-to-box energy.
