Was anyone really doubting if Zlatan Ibrahimovic would cut it in the Premier League?

The new Manchester United striker got off to the perfect start by scoring a beauty on his debut in English football.

Already 2-0 up over Bournemouth, Ibrahimovic had barely featured in a typical resolute Jose Mourinho performance by the Red Devils. But just like all great strikers, the 34-year-old popped up with a great strike to all but confirm the three points would be going back to Manchester.

Artur Boruc had made a great save to deny United's new No. 9 from a close-range free kick just minutes before the Swede etched his name onto the scoresheet.

Ibrahimovic was allowed space to drive forward into the Cherries half before being encouraged to shoot by the travelling United support.

The ex-Paris Saint-Germain star duly obliged and fiercely struck the ball into the bottom left corner from roughly 25 yards out.

Man United's performance in the match has been clinical if not convincing and Adam Smith quickly responded with a decent strike of his own just a few minutes later to bring the score to 3-1.

Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney had scored the Red Devils' first two goals to put Mourinho's new side into a commanding position but it will be Ibrahimovic's drive that will be remembered from the first day of a new era at Man United.
