Good news for Manchester United ahead of Swansea City game

The Red Devils followed up their 4-0 win over West Ham on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season with a repeat of that scoreline against Swansea City.

The Red Devils are going to collide against Swansea City in the early kick off contest today and should be considered favorites to earn all three points.

It's still the start of the season, but United have done well so far as they look to make a statement for the new campaign, with two dominating displays.

Swansea have never kept a clean sheet against Man Utd in 12 PL matches against them.

"We are more confident, we know each other more", said Pogba, who is showing a greater attacking threat this season with Nemanja Matic patrolling United's midfield behind him.

Sigurdsson - provider of nine goals and 13 assists in the league last season - left for Everton on Wednesday in a deal worth a reported £45million following drawn-out negotiations between the two clubs. "You see the players I brought to the game and they are players with a lot to give". And while the Welsh side pushed their lines higher up on the pitch, they could not create many scoring opportunities.

"I've always thought that when you only have one match per week you have to be much, much better than when you have two or three matches and no time to train properly".

United controlled large parts of the game and were eventually rewarded with three goals in four minutes as the game drew to a close.

Romelu Lukaku got off to the best possible start with a brace. The game was quite even through most of the contest, but Lukaku's goal opened things up and United simply took advantage of that to bolster their lead.

"I think we play together very well", he told manutd.com on his relationship with Pogba.

Tammy Abraham, on loan from Chelsea, partners Jordan Ayew, with Mesa playing just behind them.

If one looks at the final score without watching the game, it would be easy to think Manchester United demolished Swansea. Swansea City might get Leon Britton back if he can pass a late fitness test, but none of Fernando Llorente, Ki Sung-yeung, or Nate Dyer will be available while they work their way back to health.
