These victories are becoming quite the regularity, aren’t they? As Rooney did say in his post match interview, we really would have lost that after going 1-0 down a few weeks ago. But it was a testament to the Allardyce regime that the fight was there and we came back and won the game convincingly in the end.
We were never the worse team in the game, but we just couldn’t carve out any chances whereas Swansea took theirs. But we won a penalty – another thing that seems to be popping up lately – late on and DCL converted the rebound.
When we came out, we pressed Swansea right from the off and never looked back, and a Sigurdsson screamer followed by a successful-this-time Rooney pen meant that we remain unbeaten in six games.
Chelsea are up next and they aren’t in bad form themselves, but at the moment I’d put us up against anyone.
