David De Gea does it again with ridiculous save against Swansea

But add some stoic defending to the mix and as soon as United scored those 2 goals, the game was done and dusted.

"Our transition when we lost the ball was slower, our passing was slower, our movement the same, so players with an unbelievable first half in the second half, they let it go down a little bit".

First half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez fired Manchester United to an important victory over Swansea City.

Hundreds of fans staged a march against West Ham's co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan before kick-off in the aftermath of the crowd protests that marred their recent home defeat against Burnley.

Like Pogba, Sanchez's form has also come under close scrutiny since his high-profile transfer to United but, as with his French team mate, the Chilean could be pleased with his afternoon's endeavours.

However, with England worldwide Jesse Lingard in magnificent form and having a hand in both goals, United had settled this game inside the opening 20 minutes.

The visitors made two changes for the second half as Tom Carroll and a Tammy Abraham replaced Ki Sung-yeung and Nathan Dyer.

Jose Mourinho was in such good spirits after Manchester United beat Swansea that he invited rival manager Carlos Carvalhal into his post-match news conference.

Sanchez scored his first goal for the club following his transfer from Arsenal.

Since joining United from Atletico Madrid as a talented but nervy shot-stopper back in 2011, De Gea has played 307 times for the club and transformed into a true world-class star. His manager applauded - as he did when Pogba attempted long passes which did not come off.

Guardiola's side took their foot off the gas in the second half and Everton restored a little pride with a 63rd minute strike from Yannick Bolasie. Mourinho acknowledged as much.

"He went away, he worked on his game, he improved on a hell of a lot of things". Six or seven players had played worldwide football midweek.

Going forward, the United players, agile and mobile even in the absence of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, offered the Swans no peace of mind.
