Swansea 0-4 Man Utd player ratings: Four 8/10s as Red Devils stroll to rout

Posted by

Man Utd secured a 4-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday, with goals from Eric Bailly, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial sealing the victory.

There was a cagey opening to the game as despite dominating possession, United found life tough trying to break down a well organised Swansea side.

Eventually, they found that breakthrough as Bailly tapped home the opener just before half-time, while a late onslaught saw Man Utd score three goals in quick succession to put the Swans away.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan grabbed the Sky Sports MOTM award, and rightly so after a classy performance saw him register two more assists to help Lukaku and Pogba get on the scoresheet.

The latter was influential in midfield, albeit he did escape a loud red-card shout in the first half, while Martial was brilliant off the bench again as he completed the rout with a well-taken goal.

Bailly was solid at the back and added a goal to his afternoon’s work to get an 8/10 from us, while in contrast, it was a real struggle for Swansea as Paul Clement and his men will have to regroup and go again with the help of some new additions before the transfer window closes.
