Manchester United had a great start to their Premier League campaign as they literally demolished their opponents West Ham United by 4-0. Belgian marksman Romelu Lukaku scored a brace to go with two wonderful solo efforts from the French duo Anthony Martial and  Paul Pogba, giving them a much-desired boost to have a good season ahead.

Mourinho’s side will be taking on Swansea City in their next match, who settled for a goalless draw in their first match against Southampton. However, they will be looking to make a match out of their next encounter in the Premier League, as they host an in-form Manchester United side at the Liberty Stadium.

Manchester United finished their last season as the winners of the Europa League but had to settle for a sixth position finish in the Premier League. This time though, they have revamped their squad for the new season and have shot to the top of the league table with an absolutely flawless performance against the Hammers.

Their lineup for the next match is supposed to remain the same, as Jose Mourinho, their gaffer, might not prefer to break the winning combination and make it a point to remain in the top of the leaders’ table after Matchweek 2 in the Premier League. The lineup for the Swansea game might look like this-

Defence-

The defence, with a new combination of Phil Jones and Eric Bailly at its heart, looked much more solid than the last season in the opening fixture for the Red Devils. Daley Blind and Antonio Valencia on the left and right back positions were at their best, running up and down the field to ensure that there is no dearth of quality balls into the opposition half and also fending off the opponents from making moves against them. Mourinho will hope that they stick to their task and perform the same way in the next match against Swansea as well.

Midfield-

The introduction of Nemanja Matic in the midfield alongside Paul Pogba has given Manchester United a different level of solidarity and they are sure that the Serbian enforcer will keep doing a good job for his team in the forthcoming days as well. Juan Mata, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford are also expected to continue with their good form and make it another memorable performance for the Red Devils against Swansea.

Attack-

Taking the huge responsibility to score for his new team, the second highest scorer from the last term, Romelu Lukaku has looked in ominous touch in the last match. Manchester United will depend on him heavily to make it two wins out of two to kick start their 2017/18 Premier League season.
