Man United’s first Premier League match of the season at Old Trafford was won against Southampton, which was also a home debut for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He bagged himself a brace to announce himself to the home faithful.

Ibrahimovic took his tally to three-goals in two-matches as he scored the goals in the two-nil win over Southampton but, which isn’t always Zlatan like, he was happy to share the success with his teammates as opposed to take the accolades himself.

Commenting to Sky Sports following the win on Friday he said he’ll always look to score, and is happy with his goals so far, but the team doing well is more important.

‘If the team does good, the individual does good. I try to do what I am best at. So far three goals, I am happy for the team. Two games, two wins. We are becoming better and better. It is a good start, we must get used to winning. We are happy for the three points.’

Not a bad start to Premier League life is it from the Swede.

He finished by admitting the English game is quite different to that in France with the competition stronger but the outcome, as he was used to with Paris Saint Germain, has so far been the same, which is all that counts.

‘The Premier League is tougher than France and you have to get to know the game. If the goal is early or late, it is the same thing because it is the three points that count.’
