Premier League: Ibrahimovic Strikes as Man United Beat Bournemouth

Manchester United began their Premier League campaign with a 3-1 victory at Bournemouth.

Manager Jose Mourinho started new signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly in his first Premier League squad at his new side, while another new buy, Henrikh Mkhitaryan began on the bench.

World record signing, Paul Pogba was suspended.

The first half was a largely cagey affair, but United took the lead when Juan Mata capitalized on a defensive error to tuck the ball into an empty net.

Wayne Rooney doubled the visitors’ lead just before the hour mark, while Ibrahimovic found the bottom corner from distance five minutes later to put United out of sight.

Bournemouth entertained slim hopes of an unlikely come back when Adam Smith smashed into the top corner, but United saw of the match without much alarm to take all the points.
