Manchester clubs' dominance continues on Week 2 of Premier League

Well, one would think that the marquee signing, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Paul Pogba will be the natural first team players for the club but then he would be wrong. The 34 year old stunned in his debut on Saturday, scoring just minutes into the game against Turkish side Galatasaray with a jaw-dropping bicycle kick which gave United the lead in the very beginning of the game. "And, as long as I feel I can develop, I'm happy". And this is exactly why his transfer was so much appreciated by millions of Manchester United fans across the globe.

Jose Mourinho's side, meanwhile, managed to beat Bournemouth 3-1 away from home before going down to the south coast where they beat Southampton on the second weekend of the new season.

They chanted in tribute to Ibrahimovic who scored the first goal from a header then added a second from a penalty, and the former Paris Saint-Germain striker said: "The supporters at United are incredible and I have this feeling in every game that I've played that they are the 12th player on the field".

Although Zlatan has no prior experience playing within England however, he has played - and more importantly scored - in six different countries across his long and illustrious career (Sweden, Holland, Italy, Spain, France, and now England).

Joe Ingles' Aussie Boomers Move On To Olympic Semifinals
Mills has embraced the leadership role on the floor, and he has maintained his red-hot shooting and efficiency numbers. He played sparingly in Australia's exhibition games over the summer, but was ready when the games started to count.

The former United assistant manager will face the club for the first time since leaving in 2013.

In beating Leicester City in the season opener, Hull became the first promoted team to beat the Premier League champions on the first day of the season, and in beating Swansea City this weekend, they equalled Bolton Wanderers' record of best start to a Premier League season by a promoted team which was set in 2001.

The big Swede has scored three times already this season, but is not letting his tally bother him and is only focused on winning the league. "Zlatan is world class", said Eric Bailly, the United centre-back.

Now, having said all that, I don't expect him to be able to maintain his current rate of 1.5 goals per Premier League game, but there's no reason why he couldn't get near the 20/25-goal mark for season.
