Sigurdsson Snatch Victory From Manchester United Mouth

 A brilliant Gylfi Sigurdsson free-kick earned Swansea City a precious point in their battle for English Premier League survival and damaged Jose Mourinho side Manchester United's push for the top four.

The Iceland International[Sigurdsson] curled over the wall from about 20 yards to cancel out United’s skipper Wayne Rooney's penalty and move the Swans to within two points of 17th-placed Hull.

The Red Devil stay fifth, level on points with Pep Gaurdiola’s side Manchester City, who play Middlesbrough on Sunday, and a point behind Liverpool after the same number of matches.

The setback of the dropped points was compounded by the loss of both defenders Eric Baily and Luke Shaw to injuries joining a list that already includes fellow centre - backs Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo.

But the result was apparently fair on the Swans, who had every reason to claim that forward Marcus Rashford dived for the penalty that Rooney converted.
