Anthony Martial has warned Manchester United not to get carried away by their impressive start to EPL season as the leaders head to Swansea today.

Mourinho left the 21-year-old out of United's opening day starting eleven, but Martial came on to score his side's third goal against West Ham.

Martial, on as a substitute, scored United's third goal in a devastating four-minute span when he finished a counter-attack with a low shot into the corner.

Manchester United get the Premier League weekend underway on Saturday, travelling to face Swansea City in the early kickoff.

"We are not favourites, not the dream team". I'm happy with the squad we have and I'm ready to go without the fourth player. United are undefeated in their last three matches against the Swans but have often struggled against the team from South Wales in the past. I think I can still improve and I will do it of course.

"Everyone knows the players we have". "Probably, the player I was looking at [in the transfer market] was not a pure winger, because I have pure wingers".

"If they have problems the problems are going to finish in a couple of weeks because, in a couple of weeks, the market is closed and they don't have problems anymore", Mourinho said.

Tottenham have again been linked with the Frenchman, who found chances hard to come by last season due to Mourinho's well-documented frustrations with the attacker.

Jose Mourinho's side look much better equipped now to deal with sides who sit deep and try to frustrate them; their attacking verve was too much for a defensive-minded West Ham last Sunday.

France global Martial, 21, scored 17 goals in all competitions following his 2015 move from Monaco, but found the net only four times in 18 league starts last season.

"After every training session, they are waiting for us outside the training ground to take pictures, to give a signature so I think the club is one of the biggest in the world. I feel good playing that way, but it depends on what the manager wants", Pogba was quoted as saying by the Evening Standard.

Since Swansea changed their name to the current one, United have played eight times at Liberty Stadium.

Swansea City vs Manchester United is set to begin at 5pm IST, 12.30pm BST, 7.30am ET.

"I told Mr Woodward that obviously my plans were four, but I also told be cool, no pressure from me, do what you think is the best for the club".

Jose Mourinho can't count only on long-term absentees Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young.
