Swansea City vs Manchester United Preview

The earned 41 points were enough for 15th place in the Premier League standings.

Mourinho's United completed their victory with a devastating late burst in which Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and substitute Anthony Martial scored between the 80th and 84th minutes after Eric Bailly had netted late in the first half with his first goal for the club.

After some major spending during the Summer, Jose Mourinho will be expected to guide the Red Devils to a much better league finish after a lowly 6th past year.

Manchester United will be without Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, and Marcos Rojo with a hamstring problem, joint injury, and an ACL injury respectively. "You see the players I brought to the game and they are players with a lot to give".

The Reds bid to make it back-to-back wins tomorrow when they travel to Swansea.

"I told (executive vice chairman) Mr Woodward my plans were four (new players), but I also told him be cool, no pressure from me, do what you think is best for the club".

He has won the domestic title in his second season in each of his last five managerial positions - at Porto, Chelsea twice, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. Last season, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was United's frontman in the same way Lukaku is this season, but over time the Swede started to have a detrimental influence on his side.

The post Two-out-of-two for Mourinho's United in 4-0 Swansea win appeared first on Vanguard News. "We hope we can carry on like this".

When asked if Manchester United are the biggest club he's played for, Matic told Sky Sports: "Definitely, everyone knows what Manchester United is about".

"I think the team is confident and in both matches winning 1-0 at halftime, we didn't start the second half looking like we had to keep a clean sheet to win the match", he said.

It's worth recalling how Man Utd remained unbeaten over the opening few weeks of the 2016/17 Premier League season, suffering defeat for the first time in September's Manchester derby.

Lukaku then poked wide after United embarked on a rapid counter-attack, before Phil Jones headed against the woodwork from a Juan Mata free-kick when he should have done better.

"I don't think we are (buying anymore), unless something happens to put us in the market again", Mourinho was quoted as saying by espnfc. "For 75 minutes the result was open, even if I felt we were in control of the match".
