Manchester United got their Premier League campaign off to a fine start, courtesy of a comfortable 3-1 win away at Bournemouth. Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were all on target for Jose Mourinho’s side with Adam Smith bagging a consolation goal for the Cherries.
However, after the game, Ibrahimovic and Rooney looked rather bemused by Sky’s decision to give centre-half Eric Bailly the man of the match award, despite the centre-half’s impressive display.
Taking the award from the interviewer, Ibrahimovic quipped “I thought it was Wayne”…

Swedish striker Ibrahimovic’s goal, on 64 minutes, was a superb low strike and overall, the performance bodes well for the Red Devils’ season…
As for Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth, it could be a tough second season in the top-tier.
