Swansea 0 – Man United 4
Every Monday, Man United’s Spanish star Juan Mata uploads a weekly blog online.
Man United have started the season in fabulous form, with two Premier League wins against West Ham and Swansea.
Jose Mourinho opened the season with a 4-0 win over the Hammers, while the Red Devils scored another 4-0 win over Swansea on Saturday.
For the second weekend in a row, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial all got on the scoresheet.
Are Man United the team to beat in this season’s Premier League?
Man United’s new club record

For the first time in the club’s esteemed 110 year history, Man United have won their first two matches of a season 4-0.

Yet, before Man United fans get too carried away, Mata has admitted the scoreline over Swansea flattered Mourinho’s men. He said:
In terms of football, the week ends with a very good feeling again, following another convincing victory, although perhaps the score was too high.
Celebrating the victories with you is priceless, you guys are great!
The next weekend we have a new opportunity to keep gaining momentum, this time against Leicester, always a tough opponent. It would be great to take the first international break of the season with nine points out of nine.
Note of caution
It’s worth remembering that Manchester United also started the 2016-17 season like a house on fire.
United won their first three games on the bounce last term, however they ended up finishing the league in sixth spot.
And that was without the added pressure of regular Champions League football.
However, it’s also true that Joe Mourinho is the king of winning the league title in his second season.
He’s previously done that at Porto, Chelsea (twice), Real Madrid and Inter Milan. So will Man United be next?
