The struggling Swansea City have snatched a valuable 1-1 draw against their hosts Manchester United, as the Red Devils’ bid for Champions League qualification suffers a catastrophic setback.

The home side were far from their best at Old Trafford on Sunday, but took the lead against the run of play when Wayne Rooney kicked life into Man United as he converted a hugely controversial penalty in first half stoppage time.

The Welsh outfit who were the dominant force throughout the contest deservedly leveled the score with 11 minutes remaining when Icelandic striker Gylfi Sigurdsson picked out the top corner with a brilliant free kick. Despite the poor result, United stretched their unbeaten streak to 25 games, the best-ever single-season spell in seven years.
