Player Ratings: Swansea City 0-4 Manchester United, Mkhitaryan steals the show

Manchester United clinched their successive Premier League victory this afternoon after they cruised past Swansea City by a comfortable 4-0 scoreline. The win keeps United at the top of the league standings with two clean sheets to boost.

Here are our player ratings;

David de Gea: The Spain international had a relatively easy day between the sticks. His only save came from a Marcos Olsson overhead kick. 6.5/10

Antonio Valencia: Did not push forward as he usually does, but was assured in his defensive duties. 6/10

Eric Bailly: Bagged his first career goal for United in first-half added time. Put in a top performance in defence. 7/5/10

Phil Jones: Has evolved greatly under the guidance of Mourinho. Kept things calm at the back while getting to the ball first when required.  6.5/10

Daley Blind: Probably not the best of games for Blind. The Dutchman was beaten once by Jordan Ayew in the first period but managed to keep things simple in the second half. 6/10

Nemanja Matic: Following up his performance from the Premier League opener. Managed to win nearly 50/50 challenge on the day, another sublime showing. 7.5/10

Paul Pogba: Lacked discipline for the vast parts of the first-half, but played a huge part in Bailly’s goal. He capped his performance with a goal. 7.5/10

Juan Mata: Went on with his regular passing game and played the right balls forward.  6/10

Marcus Rashford: Was threatening in the counterattack for United. Should have done better with his one-on-one with Lukasz Fabianski. 6/10

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: Was largely unseen during the first period, but still ended the game with a couple of assists to his tally. The Armenian is now the league’s top assist getter with four in just two outings. 8/10

Romelu Lukaku: Notched his fourth goal in just three competitive appearances. Did not look as threatening as in the opener but still found the net against the Swans – 7/10

Substitutes:

Marouane Fellaini: Came when the scores were 1-0. Showed his commanding presence on the field again – 6/10

Anthony Martial: The Frenchman appears to have become something of a Super Sub. Scored his second goal in two games from the bench. 6.5/10

Ander Herrera: Did not have time to make any impact. N/A
