PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEP! SWANSEA 0-4 MANCHESTER UNITED 

THAT WAS AN EXHIBITION OF COUNTER-ATTACKING FOOTBALL AS UNITED BURIED SWANSEA IN A RUTHLESS TEN-MINUTE SPELL THAT WAS SIMPLY PEAK-MOURINHO. 

It'd be unwise to get the hype train running already, but United do look like they are purring. 

That's all from me Anirudh Menon as I go in search for an in-hiding Amar Basu. 

Tooodle-ooo!
...
93' I mean he dragged the shot wide himself, it's not like Anabelle's ghost came out and did the dragging. 
...
92' Jordan Ayew tries to bring a glimmer of a smile to Welsh faces but his shot is dragged wide. 
...
91' Seriously. Formality. Put Swansea out of their misery already, ref. 
...
90' Three minutes to be added on. It's all but a formality now
...
89' Swansea play keep-ball as they try to salvage some pride from the situation but Tony Valencia is having none of that. If anyone's doing keep-ball, it'll be Manchester United. 
...
87' Pogba leaps forward on another counter but his cross is wayward and poor Federico Fernandez sweeps it clear. 
...
85' Ander Herrera comes on for the excellent Henrikh Mkhitaryan... Mourinho looks quietly pleased with himself. As well he might. 
...
HOT DANG! THIS IS LIKE A GREAT WHITE SHARK SNIFFING AROUND A BLOODIED VICTIM! Pogba once again steals the ball and gambols forward with those great big, deceptively pacey, strides of his before laying it off to Martial. The Frenchman takes a touch and passes into the far corner. WOOF!
...
84' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MARTIAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!
...
83' McBurdie on for Tammy Abraham as Swansea..... wait....
...
OOO LA LA!! This is fantasy football from United now. Pogba steals the middle of the park before leaping forward.. he lays it off to Mkhitaryan who returns the favour with a sublime reverse ball... one on one with the keeper Pogba places a sumptuous chip beyond Fabianski's reach. WOOF! What a goal
...
82' GOOOOOOOOOOAL! POGBAAAAAAAA!
...
That was such a simple goal at the end of it. Mkhitaryan, Martial, Fernandez and Mawson get into a tangle, but the Armenian has the presence of mind to pick out Lukaku who has the freedom of Wales to look up and smash it past Fabianski!
...
80' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!! ROMELU LUKAKUUUUUUUUU! 
...
78'... a patient passing move ends with Martial smacking it at Mawson. Matic than gambols forward before yet another superb Fernandez tackle puts an end to the Serb's adventure. 
...
77' The Liberty has woken up from its collective slumber in the past ten odd minutes as their team dangle that oh so tempting bait of faint hope in front of them... United, though, are intent on killing this and move forward with purpose...
...
75' OH! WHAT A TACKLE FERNANDEZ! Pogba tackles Mawson superbly to win the ball and sets off on the counter before releasing Lukaku who seems set to win his foot race with the Argentine defender - but the Swansea man is having one of those days and his sliding tackle is superbly timed. 
...
74' OOOOOOOO! That was close! Pogba's swerving ball just misses that junction of crossbar and post that the best aim for. Meanwhile United throw on Tony Martial and big, bad, Marouane Fellaini for Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford
...
73' OUFF!!! Blind smashes a shot straight at goal - braving a dangerous Fer tackle - but the ball flies wide. The ref pulls play back for the foul and Fer gets into the ref's naughty book for his shenanigans. Pogba looks set to hit it...
...
72' Carroll swings in a superb, dipping corner that somehow evades everyone in the United box and runs across the face off the goal. Mata then tries to slip in Lukaku on the counter but Olsson does superbly to chest it away from danger.  
...
71'... that bounces off Matic's shoulder and out for another counter. Fernandez was close to getting his head onto it there! 
...
70' Swansea are going for this - an Abraham cross is swiftly followed by an Olsson cross that careens off Valencia and goes out for a corner....
...
69' OOO! A lovely touch from Abraham sets Swansea roaring forward, but Blind's exceptional positioning means Narsingh can't get up to any mischief on the right wing. 
...
68' OH! Pogba bullies his way past an Olsson challenge before somehow flicking it to Mkhitaryan, but Narsingh beats the Armenian to it. United then move forward forcefully but Mkhitaryan smashes it well wide.
