Man Utd net three goals in four minutes to thrash Swansea

Perisic? Mourinho speaks out on possibility of fourth Man Utd signing

Victory over Swansea has seen Mourinho's United maintain a ideal league record with two wins out of two.

Yet, there is something ominous about the fact that they have started with back-to-back 4-0 victories.

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. Hence it is predicted that in today's match Manchester United will win against Swansea City. "We tried to control the game by keeping the ball and creating chances and we did that in both matches", Mourinho said.

Neville wrote on Twitter as the goals flew in during the second half: "Rampant!"

Now, these victories were against West Ham and the Swans, so we should be cautious before crowning them after two weeks, and everyone is eager to see how United will do against stiff competition.

Swansea, who saw midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson depart for Everton on Wednesday, capitulated in the final 10 minutes.

Having initially struggled to unlock their opponents' well-drilled defence despite taking the lead, United then opened the floodgates after 80 minutes as Romelu Lukaku confidently struck his third goal in two games for the club.

"The word that better describes the team now is confident", he said.

"As a squad, we haven't really talked about specific aims for the season too much so far, but the goal is to win as many titles as possible". Just let the horses run freely.

'I am happy, of course, and the quality of the performance gives me even more confidence. Next week we have hard match [against Leicester], very hard.

"They are so strong on the counter, powerful runners". We know the team very well.

"But we got in a mess with our organisation".

They travel to MK Dons in the Carabao Cup next before a league trip to Crystal Palace and Clement admits they need to recover quickly from Saturday's defeat.
