Manchester United (Man U) left it to the last 10 minutes to sink Swansea in their second English Premier League match, with three quick-fire goals. Swansea drew Southhampton 0-0 and continues to await the fate of Gyilfi Sigurdsson, whose protracted transfer to Everton continues to hold up the club from making major additions.

"Probably the player I was looking for was a player that allows me to play with three at the back and have a wing-back".

'He is one of the players I believe is going to have a better season this season than the previous season.

"If they have problems the problems are going to finish in a couple of weeks because, in a couple of weeks, the market is closed and they don't have problems anymore", Mourinho said.

The United manager also confirmed that, though the club are keen to sign a winger, following the purchase of centre-back Victor Lindelof, defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku, they will not buy any more players this month. "We don't have superstars here, everyone gives their best for each other".

Asked for an update on the overall fitness of his squad, United boss Mourinho told MUTV: "Everybody is fine".

"I have faith in him", Mourinho said of Martial.

"I don't think we are (in the market), unless something happens to put us in the market again", said Mourinho, whose side visit Swansea City on Saturday.

United finished outside the top four in Mourinho's first season in charge.

In the 74th minute and United also made a double substitution, Marouane Fellaini replaced Mata in midfield and Anthony Martial came on for Rashford up front.

Swansea's only gripe was that Pogba remained on the pitch for the full 90 minutes as, with the game goalless in the first half, he escaped a second yellow for a similar foul to one which he had already been booked for.

"They will play the Champions League, he (Martial) will have playing time and the competitions will be long until the end of the year".
