17 August 2013, 21:41
Swansea - Two goals each from Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck saw Manchester
United win 4-1 against Swansea in David Moyes' first Premier League
game in charge of the defending champion.
Van Persie scored an
acrobatic strike in the 34th minute after controlling a deflected pass
from Ryan Giggs before Danny Welbeck tapped in from Antonio Valencia's
cross moments later.
Wayne Rooney began the game on the bench for
United, but replaced Giggs after 61 minutes. Van Persie scored his
second 10 minutes later, running through the center of the pitch before
curling a shot into the top corner from outside the penalty area.
Bony got a debut goal for Swansea in the 81st minute before Welbeck
chipped goalkeeper Michel Vorm to complete the scoring.
