Swansea City defeated Manchester United 2-1 on Sunday for the third successive time.
Garry Monk’s Swans came from behind to defeat the visiting Red Devils who were shocked after Bafetimbi Gomis netted the eventual winner.
Juan Mata opened up the scoring for Louis van Gaal’s men with a powerful angled finish from close range early in the second half before Andre Ayew scored his third goal of the season when heading home Gylfi Sigurdsson’s cross to tie it up just after the hour-mark.
In the 66th minute, Ayew played a stunning ball with the outside of his left boot which invited Gomis to slot beyond Sergio Romero for his fourth of the season, sending Swansea fourth and replacing United who dropped to fifth.
Swansea City: 2 (Andre Ayew 61′, Bafetimbi Gomis 66′)
Manchester United: 1 (Juan Mata 48′)
Liberty Stadium, Swansea – 20,828
– Are Swansea a genuinely good side? Or have they just had some luck early on?
– United fans were very unhappy with this performance. How will LVG bounce back? Sign a striker? Keep De Gea?
Swansea are at Watford after the international break with United set to host enemies Liverpool on September 13.
