Man United 2 – Swansea 0
Swansea lost 2-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday in the Premier League.
Man United took the lead through a fifth minute Romelu Lukaku goal.
Lukaku, who scored twice for Belgium in the international break, is in excellent EPL form right now.
The Belgian has 11 goals and four assists in his last 15 games. Moreover, Lukaku has now chalked up 100 Premier League career goals.
Swansea’s day was over after 20 minutes, as Alexis Sanchez scored his second Man United goal since joining from Arsenal.
Jose Mourinho’s son vs Swansea
Away from the action on the pitch at Old Trafford on Saturday, there was plenty for Man United fans to consider when they looked at the bench.
In recent weeks it was confirmed that Michael Carrick will join the Man United coaching staff at the end of the season.
And Carrick has already started his new job, as he was part of United’s coaching staff against Swansea.
After the game Carrick celebrated the three points on social media.
But Carrick’s post also flagged up another interesting person on Man United’s bench against the Swans.
Jose Mourinho’s son, Felix, was also spotted in the United coaching group at the Theatre of Dreams.
How Felix Mourinho started working for Man United? There hasn’t been any update from United confirming such an appointment.
Yet, it’s worth noting that Mourinho has previously discussed his son following in his footsteps. Speaking in a documentary televised on Poruguese television last year, Mourinho stated the following:
One day, after a period of a few bad results, he comes up with some analysis. Obviously suffering because Dad wasn’t doing well, we had lost to Watford and Man City [in September 2016] I think. And he came with the stats of the team, I showed them to my assistants and I told them, be careful as one day this boy will take one of your places.
I compare him with me at his age, where I would try do the same sort of things for my dad, of course with different technology methods, but analysis from a kid now aged 17, but 16 then.
