Manchester United continued their impressive form on boxing day as they beat Sunderland comfortably by a 3-0 margin. The home side have been completely in control of the game for most parts of the game as they looked bright in both attack and midfield throughout the 90 minutes.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has once again been the man in the final third as the 35-year old has scored an impressive goal and assisted the other two goals. Paul Pogba has also been impressive as he looked reliable over the past month which saw Manchester United gain important momentum going into the second half of the season.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan who came off the bench has yet again hit headlines after he managed to score an impressive scorpion kick from Zlatan’s cross from the right. All in all, Manchester United fans were delighted by the way the Red Devils has played as they look to move higher up the table in the weeks to come.
Jose Mourinho would be very happy with the performance of the team as they have now won four games in a row in the Premier League and are looking to finally found their groove. Here we look at how the twitter reacted as Manchester United dominated Sunderland in yet another stellar Boxing day performance.
