Zlatan Ibrahimovic letting fly with a karate kick a la ex-Manchester United legend Eric Cantona, as he celebrates scoring United's second goal - the striker's first in seven games - against Swansea with team-mate Phil Jones. Record signing Paul Pogba had earlier scored in the 15th minute. The Swede added a third (33rd minute) while Mike van der Hoorn replied for Swansea (69th) as Jose Mourinho's side returned to winning ways with a 3-1 win at the Liberty Stadium. Ibrahimovic's first strike was also the Premier League's 25,000th goal.
