Man United win 3-1 at Swansea

Jose Mourinho fielded a much-changed side for today’s Premier League trip to Swansea… and it paid off big time with Manchester United leading 3-0 at half time.

Having failed to win each of their last four Premier League fixtures, today’s comfortable win in Wales took Manchester United up to sixth in the table.

On the back of much media criticism, Paul Pogba scored a screamer to break the deadlock before Zlatan Ibrahimovic bagged an excellent brace.

Carrick the difference

Manchester United fans appear to believe the inclusion of Michael Carrick was the reason why Manchester United’s performance was greatly improved.

The 35-year-old England international today started his first Premier League game of the season and ran the show from his defensive midfield role.

Check out some tweets on Michael Carrick from Manchester United fans (and Peter Schmeichel) below. Surely he can’t be dropped after today’s showing?
