United race to top of Premier League table after demolishing Swansea

United race to top of Premier League table after demolishing Swansea

A blistering three-goal burst in four second-half minutes saw Manchester United sweep aside Swansea City to continue their impressive winning start to the Premier League season.

It took them until October 24 and a 5-0 win over Blackburn to score four or more in a game.

As if it to say "we're no fluke", it was the second 4-0 scoreline mustered by the Red Devils a in row, following their 4-0 win over West Ham last week.

After some major spending during the Summer, Jose Mourinho will be expected to guide the Red Devils to a much better league finish after a lowly 6th past year.

When it was pointed out to Mourinho that United had not made a start like this to a season for 110 years, he said: "I prefer to say we start last season with two matches, six points and we finished sixth".

United, who scored twice late on to beat West Ham by the same score last weekend, have one of the strongest benches in the league and it was Martial's 75th-minute introduction that began the mayhem. We have to use these weeks - and we have one more - when we have one match per week.

Swansea had no answers for the pace, the power and the strength of Mourinho's men who look a totally different prospect to last season.

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United breaking records... Swansea in the upcoming match is considered an outsider and not for nothing, because in the team there are no important players of the attack, while in the MJ with the composition of the full order.

United have delivered three names on Mourinho's summer wishlist at a cost of more than £150m - Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and centre-half Victor Lindelof.

Asked ahead of Saturday's trip to Swansea whether he expected further signings, the manager said: "I don't think we are, unless something happened that put us in the market again".

Chelsea signed Bakayoko from Monaco in a £40 million ($51.4 million, 43.8 million euros) deal and have been linked with Leicester City man Drinkwater.
