A late trio of goals helped Manchester United to an impressive 4-0 win away to Swansea on Saturday, as the Red Devils’ superb start to the new season continued in style.
Swansea boss Paul Clement played five at the back and the formation seemed to be working, with the Red Devils struggling to break down the well-drilled hosts.
However, just before the break, some poor marking allowed Paul Pogba to head against the crossbar from a corner, leaving Eric Bailly to bundle the ball home for his first ever goal for United.
After the break, the Swans did their best to thwart their visitors, while without the departed Gylfi Sigurdsson, they struggled to create much of their own.
Then, as the hosts pushed for an equaliser, United pounced, with Romelu Lukaku, Pogba (via a deft dink) and sub Anthony Martial scoring within a potent four-minute spell.
The win sees United make it two 4-0 wins in a row, with Jose Mourinho’s big-money side starting to look capable of a credible title tilt this season.
As for Clement and co., some creative reinforcements are surely needed if they are to survive another season in the top-flight.
