United goes club-record 25 games un­beaten

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

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.
