Swansea 0 - 1 United

Jones Vidic Rio Evra(Fabio)
Nani Carrick Park Giggs(Fletcher)
Rooney Chicharito(Valencia)

Yet Another Important Goals Scored By Chicho
Another good result comes our way and Chicharito was our hero yet again. His early strike was what decided the match as we defended excellently throughout the 90 minutes. It is our 5th successive clean sheet after getting hammered by City. Our defence must have learned its lesson.

International Football Must Have Taken Its Toll On Nani
Attacking-wise we weren’t really menacing. Apart from the goal, we only really troubled Swansea’s keeper during the final 10 minutes and that was as soon as Valencia entered the field of play. We looked a tad better with Antonio on the right so I expect him to start on Tuesday. Carrick put in a very good performance as well. His pocket passes were a breath of fresh and he protected our defence quite well. Meanwhile at the back, our central defenders barely put a foot wrong in front of the excellent De Gea. Our young Spaniard was up to the task yet again. Well done to the Nostradamuses who wrote our goalie off in August. Jones wasn’t so impressive during the first half but played much better during the second. He came agonisingly close to scoring late in the game. On the other side, Evra was given a torrid time by Swansea’s fast winger. I forgot his name though!

Giggsy played some decent passes and was at times our only creative player and, given his age, that is a tad worrying. Nani was anonymous and Rooney wasn’t at his usual best. Chicharito who keeps scoring very very important goals was caught offside quite often, which is quite annoying….and let me not mention his heavy touches at times! My man of the match? Carrick

We couldn’t buy an away game last year but we’re doing quite well away from home this year so I’m not complaining. 1-0’s ,6-0’s  all yield 3 points and that is what we wanted. Bring on Benfica!

Some stats for ya
  • We only won 5 away games last season. We’ve already won 4 this year.
  • This was Swansea’s first loss at the Liberty Stadium this season.
  • Our goal was the first goal they conceded at the Liberty Stadium  (2nd actually, the other being an own goal)
