Manchester United destroy Swansea

  • Romelu Lukaku joins elite Manchester United group with Swansea goal

Swansea City open their 2017/18 Premier League home campaign in the lunchtime kick off today as they entertain Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium (12.30pm, Live on Sky Sports).

The Belgian global has showed signs of improvement and Mourinho will be happy with the way he has performed in the first two games, as he becomes a key player if they are to win the Premier League.

"We had team spirit last year, but this year we're having a little bit of luck, we've started very well".

Eric Bailly put them ahead with his first United goal on the stroke of half-time before Romelu Lukaku, Pogba and substitute Anthony Martial scored in the final 10 minutes.

Manchester United are satisfied with their transfer business and are under no pressure to sign a fourth player in the current window, manager Jose Mourinho said.

Swansea had the first chance of the game, Jordan Ayew's cross drifted towards goal, striking the bar, leaving David De Gea frozen to the spot.

Just to give context to how well this season has started for them, no Red Devils team has managed a +8 goal difference in the Premier League era. Last weekend they had six and scored four.

Mourinho also assured French global Anthony Martial of a place in his team by revealing that he is not looking to replace the forward.

Martial feels his friend has all of the physical and mental attributes that are needed to become the world's best player, as he told us: "Paul is very mentally strong and he is very sure of himself".

"I am calm. When I look to last match, I like many things".

His words reinforced the feeling that United are a much stronger force this season, not least due to their strength on the bench.

The young Englishman was booed enthusiastically by Swansea fans after winning a penalty in the corresponding fixture at Old Trafford last season. It would be great to take the first global break of the season with nine points out of nine.

"What I hope he doesn't do is forget what has taken him to Man Utd, to forget what his strength is".

The 19-year-old forward - yet to score this season - was a frustrated figure in Wales after he wasted a one-on-one opportunity, while his appeals for free-kicks were often waved away by referee Jonathan Moss.
