Ayew stun Man. United

Ayew-scored for Swansea

SWANSEA City staged a stirring comeback to inflict a first defeat of the season on Manchester United.

After the Swans had edged a goalless first half, United took the lead early in the second as Luke Shaw’s marauding run and cross set up Juan Mata to blast in from close range.

Andre Ayew headed the hosts level after a swift counter-attack as United conceded their first league goal of the season.

Ayew then provided a marvellous pass for Bafetimbi Gomis, whose shot squirmed under Sergio Romero to give Swansea a third straight win against United.

Having done the double against United for the first time last season, Garry Monk’s side became only the sixth team to claim three successive league victories against the Red Devils.

For visiting manager Louis van Gaal, a first loss of the campaign was a miserable way to mark his 50th game in charge.

With both teams protecting unbeaten starts to the season, there was a bristling intensity to the early exchanges.

United had not conceded in their opening three matches, but that record was under threat as Swansea pressed with chances for Gomis and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
