PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEP!

That is that, as two quality Jesse Lingard goals give a very professional, very assured, Manchester United a comfortable 2-0 win on the night. 

Thank you for reading...  Anirudh Menon signing out!

Toodle-ooo
...
93' Naughton tries from twenty-five yards, and why not. He wins a corner off Smalling's back for his troubles... OOO LA LA ROMERO! The corner floats across and Fer smashes it at goal where Romero pulls off stunning reflex save
...
91' Lukaku tries to bully his way to goal - but Ki does superbly to hold him off and start a Swansea counter, but unfortunately it all peters out as Rangel's cross bounces out of play on the other side
...
90' Three minutes to be added on. United well en-route to a comfortable win
...
88' Fer does superbly to turn away from Matic and then release Tammy Abraham down the right flank... but United are quietly determined to keep the clean sheet 
...
87' United have a corner.... but nothing really happens from it
...
86'  WOOT WOOT! Luke Shaw is coming on! Anthony Martial is the one coming off - he's been alright tonight - but the United fans break out into the Tony Martial again and that should keep his spirits high
...
84' Matic stops a Swansea attack with cold ruthlessness and United go pass-pass-passity-pass again. 
...
83' Naughton sends in a decent looking ball - with three in white inside the United box - but Romero does ever so well to come out quickly and claim it without hesitation. Great authority of his own area shown there by the Argentine no.1
...
81' Lindelof, bursting with confidence, weaves into the box before laying it off to Blind. He then jumps for the Dutchman's cross but Mawson gets to it before him. Lingard runs onto the rebound but smashes a shot straight at the goalkeeper
...
80' Abraham picks out Routledge with a peach of a ball in behind the United defence, but the latter wanders offside - when he really oughtn't have
...
79' Routledge finally gets Blind one-on-one and draws a silly foul from the Dutchman - who gets booked for it - from the setpiece the ball is worked into the box where Van der Hoon claims a push on him by Blind, but the ref waves play on
...
77' Swans are trying to put up a fight, but they will be wary of what happened when they tried to force the issue at 1-0 down in the Premier League this team against this opposition, 3 goals in the last ten minutes, meant the score ended at 4-0!
...
75' AI! AYEW takes it instead and he floats it comfortably into the hands of Romero
...
74' OOOH! Romero is called into action for what feels like the first time and he has to push a forceful Abraham shot away... from Cluca's corner, Tuanzebe picks up a yellow whilst giving away a freekick at the edge of the box... Clucas will fancy this....
...
72' Swansea ring in another change as Tammy Abraham replaces Oliver McBurnie...  
...
70' McTOMINAY AGAIN! He smashes a header at Nordfeldt that the keeper can only push back into the area - where Tuanzebe sends an awkward high into the Wales sky from two yards out
...
69' OH McTOMINAY! A lovely little dummy from Lukaku allows the young man to power inside but he's met by van der Hoorn and all he can gain is a corner. 
...
67' United are passing the ball around beautifully now and are doing as they will on the pristine Liberty pitch
...
66' Ah, to be a Swansea defender. Rashford gets taken off - to a collective sigh of relief - only for Romelu freakin' Lukaku to come on in his stead. Oh, and the excellent Ander Herrera goes off for.... Nemanja freakin' Matic. For Swansea, Leroy Fer sprints on in Roque Mesa's stead
...
65' Rangel tries to play in Routledge on the edge of the box, but Herrera reads it superbly and sticks out a leg that in one move turns defence into attack for United
...
63' OW OW OW! Blind plays in a lovely little ball that Lingard runs onto, and on a hattrick he unselfishly tries to pick out Rashford in the middle - instead of going for glory - but the ball fizzes harmlessly across the face of the goal
...
62' Tuanzebe has played rather well today, and he once again marshalls Routledge out of trouble. 
...
60' Lingard looks in the mood tonight, and tries to race past Rangel and Ki on the outside, but the two manage to crowd him out
...
WHAT A GOAL! OH, WHAT A  GOAL! Darmian whipped in a sublime cross that Lingard ran onto and guided superbly into the bottom corner from the edge of the penalty box. Sublime stuff from both Lingard and Darmian, there
...
59' GOOOOOOOOOOAL! LINGAAAAAAAAARD!
...
58' OOOOO LA LA! Rashford suddenly whips a gorgeous ball in from the right that almost curls into Martial's path - but all it does is run harmlessly across the six-yard box.
...
57' Pass-pass-pass-pass
...
56' United take the freekick short and Lingard tries to power his way into the box, but Mawson is having none of it. United, though, retain possession and continue their easy passing. 
...
55' Rashford turns and steps on the gas and Clucas knows there's only one way to bring him down - and that's a blatant shove in the back. He gets a yellow card for his troubles
...
53' OOOO! Another neat flick from Rashford accelerates United's play - and Lingard almooooost releases Martial through on goal - but Mawson does exceptionally well to read the pass and intercept it. 
...
52' He takes it like he did the Benfica one - and Nordfeldt eschews the option of catching it (the easy option that looked like) and punches the ball out and United can calmly build from the back again
...
51' Some high pressing from Darmian and Herrera pays dividends and the latter plays it to Rashford out on the right flank - his interesting looking cross is blocked off, but United come relentlessly back... and Rashford wins a freekick, this time on the opposite flank. 
...
49' He then proceeds to bring down McTominay as the midfielder looked to race for'ard leading a United counter straight from Lucas' corner. United waste possession, though, and Swansea return to passing the ball about neatly
...
48' Routledge and Blind ae both left rubbing their heads after a nasty looking - and completely accidental clash of heads, both continue although they do feel the effects of that one. Routledge then proceeds to continue his running battle with Tuanzebe - winning a corner off the young man this time. 
...
46' OUCH! Anthony Martial has one flying into Rangel, fighting for a header and fouling him in the process, but the Frenchman has come off the worse for the wear... as he lies on the ground feeling the small of his back. An awkward landing onto Rangel's boot did that, I presume
...
PEEP! PEEP! WE ARE OFF AGAIN!
...
PEEP! PEEP! HALFTIME!

Manchester United, barely out of first gear all night, lead at Swansea (1-0) thanks to a Jesse Lingard goal set up by a delightful Rashford assist
...
46' OOOO! Ki runs at Smalling, before playing in a lovely little ball that releases McBurnie into shooting range inside the box but he sends it spiralling out of Wales
...
45' One minute of time to be added on. 
...
44' Herrera and Darmian combine to release the latter into space on the right flank but Swansea clear his cross and Ollie McBurnie does superbly to bring play out oif his half with a surging run  that needs all of Smalling's considerable strength to stop
...
43' Swansea pass the ball around in a much better area (for them) and Clucas works out a bit of space - and sends a curling shot wide of the far post. 
...
42' Swansea play it short again and Herrera screams onto a lazy Naughton pass... he feeds it to Martial, who in turn tees up McTominay - who sends an enthusiastically powerful shot into the top tier of the Liberty. 
...
40' Oh, Rangel's gotten himself into the ref's naughty book.... a yellow for that earlier foul on Martial
...
39' Blind takes it, curling it way from goal, but McTominay's header is a touch misdirected and Swansea clear with their almost surreal calm. United win possession back and go pass-pass-pass. 
...
38' Martial nutmegs Rangel with the kind of ease that has been commonplace this season... and wins another freekick for Rashford to whip into the box. Olsson, meanwhile is out of it, and the poor sod is replaced by Kyle Naughton
...
36' United somehow scramble it clear and Olsson has to be on his toes to stop Rashford from running through on the counter... he may have, though, pulled a muscle in the process... we'll keep you updated on that!
...
35' Swansea try to build from the back again... but Mawson gets fed up with all that and sees an opportunity to allow Routledge to run behind Blind - which he does - but he doesn't factor in Tuanzebe who runs, long-limbed, onto the ball and clears it for a throw-in, from which Swansea win a cheap freekick
...
33' He takes the freekick quickly and Lingard is released into the box - but Mawson reads their intentions and steps in to stop all this riff-raff. United come haring back at Nordfeldt's goal and Lingard has another pop from an angle - but that one is headed to row Z and not the back of the net 
...
32' Clucas, who usually uses his right foot only to stand on, tries to send one in with said limb - and as expected it goes awry and out for a goalkick. Martial, who has running boots on tonight, wins a freekick with a mazy run down the right flank
