Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace on his Premier League home debut in Manchester United’s 2-0 win against Southampton.
Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United continued their fabulous start to the 2016/17 campaign as they rounded off their second victory in as many games to see the Red Devils sit atop the Premier League table. In the club’s first league game at home, United beat Southampton 2-0 with new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring both the goals.
Here’s how the contest panned out on social media:

Watching @ManUtd under Jose & SAF I don’t want the game to end, watching them under LVG I wanted my life to end.

Pogba’s stats tonight are exceptional:
Highest numbers out of anyone in: ball recoveries, take-ons, chances created and interceptions.
— Liam Canning (@LiamPaulCanning) August 19, 2016
How come people are surprised at the fact Pogba is a good football player? Thought that was kind of, ern, obvious?

Aggressive, disciplined and eye catching #MUFC performance. Zlatan/Pogba headline makers but Bailly/Mata/Shaw all superb too.
