Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Jose Mourinho

Man Utd Team News Injuries suspensions and line-up vs Swansea

Jose Mourinho praised his players for a "perfect" first half performance as Romelu Lukaku scored the 100th goal of his Premier League career and Manchester United maintained their bid to finish runners-up.

While United were pleased to see Lukaku among the goals again in their latest outing, they were just as happy to see Alexis Sanchez find the target.

Alexis Sanchez teed up the Belgium global, who saw his shot deflect past a helpless Lukasz Fabianski in the Swansea goal.

Alexis Sanchez added to Lukaku's strike to give United a fourth top-flight win in a row and move back into second place in the table.

But even allowing for Swansea's miserable first half showing, there were a lot of positives from the latest United display - particularly England global Jesse Lingard.

David de Gea was barely needed, but he was after an hour with two superb saves from Tammy Abraham.

Carvalhal, having just watched his Swansea City team lose 2-0 at Old Trafford, had turned up to his post-match press conference early and stood in the doorway as Mourinho delivered his sermon.




"We pressed so high and strong, and then recovered the ball", Mourinho said.

Klopp felt Sadio Mane should have been given a penalty instead of a yellow card for simulation in the first half. "But I think we let it go a bit".

"First half, they didn't cross the line, didn't have one shot, we press so high and strong, recovered the ball, had lots of movement and passing, we arrived in many risky positions, we should score one more".

"The second half was different. But it's fine. Every point is vital because we want to stay in second place".

Chelsea was Lukaku's first club in England but he failed to score a league goal in his three years at Stamford Bridge.

He has also been an ever-present between the United sticks, playing in all 31 Premier League matches for the Old Trafford club, while on the European stage, De Gea mustered six appearances.
