Man Utd Team News Injuries suspensions and line-up vs Swansea

Manchester United reclaimed second place in the Premier League table with a 2-0 win at home to Swansea City.

The Chilean then scored his second goal for the club doubling the Red Devils' lead after just 20 minutes, finishing expertly past the Swansea keeper, after being fed through by Jesse Lingard, who was causing all sorts of troubles to the visitors.

First half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez fired Manchester United to an important victory over Swansea City.

United moved back to second spot but remain behind leaders Manchester City. "One of the best halves we have played here".

"The team played very well in the first half so Alexis played well, but I think everybody played really well in the first half".

"The first half was ideal - one of the best we've played here", Mourinho said. The Belgium worldwide has struck 15 league goals for the Old Trafford club since signing from Everton in the close season.

The 24-year-old was pleased with the team's performance against Swansea, especially with the energetic style in the first half.

These days, few sights fail to astonish the general public when it comes to football, and yet, just when one thinks they've seen everything, something new graces the pitch.

"In the first half we did everything right, we defended very well, brought the line up, kept Swansea miles away from our goal, scored, had more chances, we played handsome".

They say the sign of a great goalkeeper is the ability to make key saves when you've had next to nothing to do during a match - and the Spaniard did exactly that in quite brilliant fashion. At the end of the season Wenger will be halfway through a two-year contract many Gunners fans felt should never have been handed in the first place to a man who had not won the Premier League since 2004.

He does at least give The Swans credit for our fightback in the second half.

"We have 10 points more than last season but there is a club which is making it practically impossible to follow".

"It is usual for us that we need to fight here, especially after a hard start, but it makes it more special at the end", Klopp said.
