Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku's movement 'not good enough'

"We were winning 1-0 and not defending and trying to score more goals but the game was open".

The Red Devils were unchanged from the win over West Ham, emphasising Jose Mourinho's feeling that his team is "confident" and "happy" within their structure and play style.

Manchester United had some major problems last season as it finished outside of the top four in the Premier League, drawing way too many games and lacking conviction in attack.

Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku, centre, celebrates scoring his side's second goal with team-mate Daley Blind during the English Premier League soccer match between Swansea and Manchester United, at the Liberty Stadium, in Swansea, Wales, Saturday Aug. 19, 2017.

United, who scored twice late on to beat West Ham by the same score last weekend, have one of the strongest benches in the league and it was Martial's 75th-minute introduction that began the mayhem.

Matic started with a first-class game and will be a huge player if he stays on the park and in the type of form we know he can deliver.

"That is what we tried to do last year and it's what we are going to try to do this year". I don't like that people are looking at these matches and thinking they are easy matches. In those matches, two matches won by Manchester United, two matches won by Swansea City and another match ended in a draw.

But Mourinho was quick to play down the win and says the real test will come when his side fall behind in a match.

Both teams hit the bar in the initial part of the match.

"You see the players that I brought to the game and they are players who have a lot to give".

"It was a tough game, especially in the first half because they were playing with five defenders".

Next on the horizon for Mourinho's free-scoring side is a clash against Leicester City next weekend as they aim to go into the first worldwide break of the season with an 100% record in the top flight of English football.
