Full-time: Swansea City 1-3 Manchester United

The Reds return to winning ways, without ever really being convincing. Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored their goals, but there are still lots of questions that need to be answered.

Until next time, folks.

Three minutes of time being added. Both sides, I fancy, just want this game to be over.


United make another sub. Wayne Rooney is the man to make way. The United captain has not been great at all, but has two assists to his name, if my memory serves me correct.


Time is running out for the hosts. They haven't played well and neither, really, have United. But the Reds appear to be on the verge of three much-needed points.

Swansea almost grab another. On this occasion, Montero lobs the ball from one side of the box to the other, but Barrow fails to make a clean connection with his volleyed effort.

Juan Mata makes way now for Jesse Lingard. Another decent performance from the Spaniard, who has been recalled to the national side on the back of his impressive showings.

United almost add a fourth through Juan Mata, but the little Spaniard sends his effort just wide of the post.

I'm amazed United haven't brought on Martial or Rashford, as their pace could be devastating on the break.

Wayne Rooney

Ibrahimovic has picked up a booking - and he will miss the Arsenal game because of that. Brainless from the Swede, that.

I've no idea, though, why Mourinho didn't sub him before now, because he would have known the situation with the striker.

The home fans are starting to get behind their side here. I'll tell you what, if the Swans can get another, I wouldn't rule anything out.

Mike van der Hoorn

GOAL: Swansea City 1-3 Manchester United (Hoorn)

Mike van der Hoorn has a goal back for the Swans! A freekick is dinked in from the right side and Mike van der Hoorn powers a header across the goal and into the net.

A lifeline for the hosts?


Montero shoots at goal and they get a corner. Cue a borderline standing ovation from the home fans.

I feel United could do with making a change, because their performance has gone a little flat in the last few minutes.

Pogba almost breaks clear of the Swans defence, but the Frenchman gets the ball trapped under his feat and the hosts are able to clear their lines.

That was Pogba at his best, though, breaking clear from midfielder and charging towards the opposition goal.

This game is wilting at the moment. There's just a painful lack of fight and energy from the Swans. There's a way to lose a football game and this, I'm afraid, isn't it.

United are passing the ball around without any pressure being applied to them. The atmosphere in the stadium is dead, apart from the United fans in the away end.

The game is like a training session at the minute. It's pretty bizarre to watch.

Jose Mourinho has not made any changes, of course, and I'm sure Ibrahimovic would love to net his first Premier League hat-trick this afternoon. I doubt he'll get a better chance, too.

We're back under way at the Liberty Stadium. Unsurprisingly, the hosts have made a couple of changes.


The mood at the Liberty Stadium is pretty bleak. Home fans were chanting "We want our club back" in reference to the club's American takeover and there are grumbles around the ground every time a Swansea player gives the ball away.

What does the second half have in store? We're about to find out, I guess.

Half-time: Swansea City 0-3 Manchester United

Well, Jose Mourinho would have been fearing another tough day at the office against Swansea but that was one-way traffic. A beauty from Paul Pogba and two much-needed goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and it's all very comfortable for United.

More in a bit, folks.

Michael Carrick has offered a bit of solidity to the United team today. His presence has freed Paul Pogba to play a bit further forward.

Should Jose Mourinho be playing Carrick more often? On this display, you'd have to say yes.

United lead 3-0 and are dominating the game, but haven't actually played that well. Swansea look really, really poor, I've got to say.

GOAL: Swansea City 0-3 Manchester United (Ibrahimovic)

This is embarrassing from Swansea. Rooney lays the ball into Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who races into the box, rides a couple of feeble tackles and then smashes the ball into the roof of the net.

United could start thinking about their goal difference at this rate.

Swansea have offered absolutely nothing so far. I mean, the United defence is very much makeshift, and yet the hosts have barely launched an attack. Baffling.


United may be leading, but Wayne Rooney has been dreadful so far. He looks to be way off the pace. The captain is giving it away so often it's almost painful to watch at times.
