Van Gaal began his reign as Manager of Manchester United manager in the premier league in defeat as the red devils lost their opening day fixture to Swansea City 2-1

Swansea took the lead against the run of play through Ki’s strike from outside the box and in the second half, Manchester United’s new captain Wayne Rooney equalized with an overhead kick from two yards. Swansea’s winner came in the 70th minute through new signing Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Manchester United controlled possession but had little mobility in midfield and as such could not impact the game positively.

For Van Gaal and the Manchester United fans, the honeymoon is over and the real work begins now
