United goes club-record 25 games unbeaten
MANCHESTER, England - Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free kick dented Manchester United’s Champions League hopes as Swansea drew 1-1 Sunday at Old Trafford to enhance its Premier League survival bid.
It was a deflating way for fifthplaced United to set a club record unbeaten streak: 25 matches dating back to Oct. 23. A more important statistic is the 14 league games they have drawn this season, 10 in front of their own fans. Swansea, though, is now only two points from safety with three games to go. Marcus Rashford’s contentiously won penalty just before halftime, converted by Wayne Rooney, had given United control of the match but Sigurdsson bent the ball home in the 79th minute.
