First Half Report

SWANSEA 0-1 MANCHESTER UNITED



Manchester United take the lead into the second 45, courtesy of Eric Bailly's 45th minute goal. A good reward for their dominance and good play on the defensive Swansea.

Swansea made a couple of changes to the starting line-up but Jose Mourinho opted for the same team that trashed the Hammers in the opening game.

The visitors controlled most of the possession but had only four shots by the end of 45 minutes, scoring one. Before the goal, Marcus Rashford had a couple of chances blown away into the keepers hands, while Juan Mata had his shot out of play.

Paul Pogba had his exceptional game on, controlling the balls behind Lukaku but his passes never got to the Belgian, while Shaw had a few mistimed crosses but did all good pushing forward with the ball.
