English Premier League: Manchester United Beat Swansea City, Second In The Table

Luke Shaw

Manchester United scored a comfortable 2-0 win, but the Spaniard made his presence felt when his team required him the most.

He never managed a Premier League goal for Chelsea, having seen game time limited during a frustrating spell with the Blues.

That ties the mark set by Robin van Persie in 2012-13 and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007-08. I could feel the intensity went down. "It was a very cool finish and long may that form continue", Klopp said. We arrived in many risky positions. The first half was flawless, they improved in the second half but we let it go. "The manager told us we all have to fight for our place in the team".

However, with his club second in the table and facing an FA Cup semi-final with Tottenham later this month, the manager remained upbeat.

Jose Mourinho has tipped Romelu Lukaku to continue improving after the striker scored his 100th Premier League goal in Manchester United's 2-0 home win over Swansea City.

The Swans had to wait until the after 65 minutes for their first efforts at goal, although goalkeeper David de Gea produced two superb saves to deny substitute Tammy Abraham.

The goal was textbook Lukaku, as he finished off a nice passing play between Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard. "We know there are no easy games in the Premier League".

David De Gea's fine double save kept Swansea at bay after they belatedly jolted into life and Mourinho was feeling chipper after securing United's return to second in the Premier League standings. His movement off the ball and ability to drift into empty pockets of space proved vital for United's dominant first half.

"The supporters were great, they have been great here bar a few. We got the job done early which helped", Moyes said.

West Bromwich Albion look certain to be relegated after Burnley's 2-1 win at the Hawthorns handed the bottom club an eighth consecutive defeat. "I'm really happy to achieve that in a league I've wanted to play in since I was six years old", he said. Without hanging fire, let's get to the key talking points from the game.
