And that was just his face. And if Real Madrid succeeds in luring Kylian Mbappe to join Zinedine Zidane, there is a possibility of Bale becoming available. "He's the same person on and off the pith and he'll continue to be like this".

Recent news suggests that United may re-sign Zlatan this week, after his former contract was not renewed. Football is football and when you make a mistake you can concede so I never felt totally relaxed. Yes, I think. Do I think he can play successfully for me? But back-to-back 4-0 wins has sent a powerful early season message to its rivals.

Former Manchester City midfielder Aaron Mooy soared 24 places up the chart to No 6 after scoring the match-winning goal at the John Smith's Stadium, while team-mate Steve Mounie slipped three places to No 7.

This was a change of pace from their teammates, with academy products Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard pulling up in an industry standard Range Rover, whilst Spaniards David de Gea and Juan Mata came seated in a high-powered Mercedes.

Eric Bailly put them ahead with his first United goal on the stroke of half-time before Romelu Lukaku, Pogba and substitute Anthony Martial scored in the final 10 minutes.

Martial's future has been in some doubt since Mourinho took over at Old Trafford last year.

Martial claims Pogba is grounded, despite all the adulation currently being heaped on him. His confidence is growing.

Last season, Liverpool's fall away from the title challenge coincided with Sadio Mane's season-ending knee injury, with the £37m addition having his campaign cut short in a major blow to Jurgen Klopp's plans for the year.

Mourinho has not yet had to rest players and rotate his squad.

"He is working really well and maybe the little French language group we have with Paul, Romelu and Marouane Fellaini is helping him".

"The third goal was a loose pass. They are so strong on the counter and they showed it again".

Next up for United is a home game against Leicester City on Saturday as they look to go into the global break with a 100 per cent record in the Premier League. The important thing for me is we've played well in these two games and we have to keep that going.

Swansea unravelled in the closing stages of their first game since selling key man Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton.
