The Red Devils were sensational as goals from Romelu Lukaku and the Chile Star (Sanchez) set the tone for a comfortable 2-0 win at home.
Jose Mourinho will be delighted as his side stuck to the tactical script on the pitch that was scintillating as Paul Pogba combined extremely well with Juan Mata to free united forward lines in transition.
In the end, the home side claimed the three points they deserved leaving Swansea with all to do to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
On this note, we evaluate three critical (3) points from the United 2-0 home victory against Swansea City.
Jesse Lingard the Architect
The English youngster was outstanding against Swansea when both the sides met at the weekend. Lingard’s pace and dynamism were too good for the visitors as he drifted in and out of the opposition defense in the game.
Manchester United were two goals (2-0) up as the young lad born bed through the middle to set-up Alexis Sanchez for arguably the match winner with less than half hour played (20 minutes).
His combination with the forward lines was exquisite as Paul Pogba and Juan Mata were in top form in behind Lingard.
That has good to do with Lingard as he continued his brilliant form after scoring for England during the International break in what was the only goal as England beat Holland 0-1 in Amsterdam.
Clean Sheet for De Gea
The Spaniard was at it again as he made some eye-catching saves against Swansea City. He continued his incredible form by picking up where he left off from the International break where he rounded his left arm around the ball to deny PSG talent, Julian Draxler. What a save as the German star tested the Spanish goal in the 1-1 draw.
De Gea stood his ground throughout the first half and was on hand to deny Chelsea Loanee Tammy Abraham after the Intermission twice to preserve United’s lead with a deserved clean sheet at home.

Milestone for Romelu Lukaku
Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku might have a tumid time in the early stages of his term in the Premier League particularly with Chelsea but for United he had achieved a feat worthy of note against Swansea.
Sanchez set up the Belgian (Lukaku) and the center forward finished brilliantly thus opening the scoring for the Red Devils.
That goal in the 5th minute of the first half was Lukaku’s 100th Premier League goal after a stint with Everton and West Bromwich Albion before joining Manchester United in the summer.
With the forward still 24 years of age, expect him to break more boundaries in the long run barring injuries in the Premier League.
