United made it eight goals in two Premier League games by following up their opening victory over West Ham with another four-star show at the Liberty Stadium.

"I think Romelu is a good player to play with", Mourinho said during a press conference at United's Carrington training base west of Manchester on Friday.

"I felt in control, if you had a chance to look at me and my body language I think you could see that".

Eric Bailly put the visitors ahead before three goals in less than four minutes dispatched Swansea, with Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial also on the scoresheet. "We work for each other and I think that is easier for us".

Rashford was on the receiving end of some loud and lengthy abuse from the Swansea fans, still upset that he dived to win a penalty against them at Old Trafford last season.

"We were competitive for long periods of the game - right up until the second goal", Clement said."The difference between the sides for a long time was a set-play".

Japanese worldwide Okazaki was on hand to rifle home the rebound from a Riyad Mahrez shot in the first minute as the 2016 Premier League champions got off to a flying start in their first home game of the season.

"Anthony Martial is working hard", said Mourinho after the 21-year-old came off the bench to score for the second game running.

"I am too stable and too experienced to lose my discipline and stability and think 4-0 makes us a dream team", he told a press conference on Friday.

Its early in the league but United like a force this season.

"It was 1-0 and we thought let's go for more and exploit the fragile morale of the opponent".

"If he was a bad player, nobody would try to provoke him". I had players on the bench who could help me.

But Mourinho refused to get carried away, especially as United began last season with wins against Bournemouth and Southampton.

At this stage, Swansea were wilting and United took full advantage with a fourth goal from substitute Martial, who curled the ball into the far corner after the home side's defence had allowed him to run towards goal.
