Picture: Man Utd key man named in Team of the Week for Swansea performance

Manchester United kicked off 2016 in the right manner, securing their first win in nine games against Swansea City. It was a much-improved performance than what we have been accustomed to in recent weeks, and at the heart of that was our club captain, Wayne Rooney.

Rooney scored a superbly executed goal with the flick of his left-boot, and came in for praise for his all-round performance. That has earned him a spot in BBC’s Team of the Week, alongside the likes of Willian, Laurent Koscielny and man of the moment Delle Alli.

The one qualm I have with Garth’s Team of the Week is the fact that there is no Anthony Martial in the line-up. Personally I felt we wouldn’t have won the game without the young Frenchman, and if it came to it, I’d put him in the team over our current captain.
