United Kingdom - Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has vowed to keep the goals coming after he scored in superb fashion against Swansea City on Sunday. 

Pogba opened the scoring for United in the 15th minute before Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace in the team’s 3-1 win at the Liberty Stadium. 

It was the 23-year-old's second goal in the Premier League since joining the Red Devils in the summer and Pogba has promised to do everything in his power to find the back of the net more regularly. 

"I have to see it again but I think this is one of the best goals I have scored for Manchester United," Pogba told MUTV.

"But I hope to score more goals. They do not have to be beautiful, but I just want to score to help the team keep winning and to carry on like this."

Pogba admitted that United’s win over Swansea was highly important as it snapped his side’s four-game winless streak in the Premier League. 

"I think every player wanted to win this game and everyone was focused," he said. "We gave it our best and gave everything, the first half was unbelievable. It was one of the best first-half performances so far and that's how we have to play.

"We have to give everything, we have to press all together and when we play together we play like that."

United are currently in sixth position in the English Premiership standings and are eight points off the leaders, Liverpool.

Mourinho's men will be looking to close the gap to the top by putting together a consecutive winning streak but will find it hard as their next fixture will see them welcoming an in-form Arsenal side to Old Trafford.
