Jesse Lingard strikes twice as Man United see off Swansea City

Adjust Comment Print

The Red Devils tasted defeat for the first time this season after a lacklustre display in Yorkshire and Mourinho tore into his players afterwards.

"It is always good to win trophies, especially this one which comes so early in the season". Wayne Routledge experienced a lot of success down the right hand side and made strides into the United penalty area on a few occasions, though the winger couldn't provide a good enough final product.

In truth, Liverpool outplayed Mourinho's side in every aspect, but they couldn't find the finishing touch to gain the lead.

The Swede is expected to start at the heart of Manchester United's defence on Tuesday night with Eric Bailly still out through injury.

Mourinho lost his temper with his stars for the first time during his 16-month tenure as Manchester United manager. The tempo of the game was incredibly low and a number of fouls broke up play to such an extent that genuine attacking play became a rarity.

Thankfully a goal came without the need of a substitution, but for Swansea it made the task of getting back into the game that much harder. I would say Scott, probably, very well because he was really comfortable and strong in midfield.

Darmian's cross found Lingard between two Swansea defenders and his powerful header from just inside the box gave Nordfeldt no chance.

Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial were among Manchester United's travelling party to Swansea as they flew to Wales on the club's private plane.

Mourinho said after the loss: 'I don't even remember a friendly match where our attitude was so poor.

Manchester United have announced their starting line-up and substitutes to take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium in an EFL Cup tie this evening. Having started the season in blistering form it will be worrying for Jose Mourinho that his side have look so uninspiring of late. Victory for Spurs at Old Trafford would move the London club ahead of United in the table, and Mauricio Pochettino's side will enter the game full of confidence.
