Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Manchester United fans have hit it off quickly while there was plenty of praise for Marouane Fellaini and Eric Bailly.
Manchester United took their time to get going at Bournemouth but they ended the game top of the Premier League.
Goals from Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic sealed a clinical victory for Jose Mourinho’s side as the swagger appeared to return to United’s play.
There were also plenty of outstanding performances. Marouane Fellaini gave the ball away literally just once and his passing was quicker than most during one of his most accomplished outings in red.
Antonio Valencia was excellent again down the right, playing an instrumental role in Rooney’s header, while Eric Bailly made it two competitive games and two man of the match awards as he dominated the Bournemouth attack on an uncompromising Premier League bow.
Daley Blind was also near faultless as he produced a performance which suggested Chris Smalling might struggle to regain his place in the defence.
It is early days, but the fans are chanting ‘United, United, top of the league again’.
Here is what the fans have had to say on the M.E.N. website:
“The much maligned Fellaini was outstanding.”
“Only Rooney had a bad game, everyone else did really well. Micki in the no. 10 role next time please.”

Seven attempts on target, it took us until November last year to do that.

Think we had more shots on target today than we did the entire second half of last season. #mufc

@jb_8521 only thing I'll say is his passing is conservative, slow and sideways. But worked hard and put a great shift in.

Daley Blind's 1v1 defending is at times so good. Obviously lacks pace but excels in so many other areas, very clever player.

Zlatan brings the razzmatazz and will be great but back-to-back MoMs for Bailly underlines fact he's been MUFC's best performer so far.

Zlatan chooses Man of the Match.. Not you @SkySports 😂

After one match it’s safe to say I’d leave my wife and children for any form of liaison with Zlatan.
