Manchester United opened their Premier League campaign with a 4-0 hammering of West Ham United at Old Trafford last week, per Sky Sports.

The Red Devils are going to collide against Swansea City in the early kick off contest today and should be considered favorites to earn all three points.

Manager Jose Mourinho told BBC Sport despite taking a while for his team to make an impact he was relaxed about the performance.

Swansea have never kept a clean sheet against Man Utd in 12 PL matches against them.

With Martial still on the bench, Marcus Rashford continues in attack with Romelu Lukaku, who scored a brace on his United debut.

Swansea vs. Manchester United is scheduled on Saturday, August 19, at the Liberty Stadium in Plasmarl, Swansea, Wales.

The transfer was met with surprise amongst some fans, with Matic having played a crucial role in helping Chelsea to win the Premier League title two seasons ago.

First, Lukaku, quiet for pretty much the whole game, found space in behind, took a nice pass from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and showed all the composure needed to slot the ball in.

On the basis of their first league match, the Red Devils will be serious contenders for the title this time around and, judging by their upcoming fixtures - just Everton to face among the heavyweight sides before mid-October - they could lay down a real marker to their rivals.

United controlled large parts of the game and were eventually rewarded with three goals in four minutes as the game drew to a close.

Lukaku can get on the scoresheet again and I expect Matic to impress again after a man-of-the-match display in round 1. My question is how many clubs in the world are powerful enough buy the best players in the Premier League and the answer is I think is very obvious. Swansea had a good performance, but they must improve their concentration over the final minutes because they melted down completely down the stretch.

They are also national team players with the chance to play worldwide games.

"When people say, for example, Chelsea lost an important midfield player, if you lose one but you buy Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater, for example, what's the problem?"
