Manchester United have played their third competitive match since the start of the season and two young wingers have been showing their arguments to claim the place in starting XI. With the players around him at United, he could be even more prolific than last season.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho believes Anthony Martial's attitude has improved following talks with the Red Devil's winger.

The Portuguese tactician, whose United side finished sixth in the league in 2016/17, thinks its because his players are happier on the pitch this time. "We are resting people for rotation, so we keep the team", Mourinho said during his ppst-match press conference after Saturday's 4-0 Premier League victory over Swansea.

Swansea had the first chance of the game, Jordan Ayew's cross drifted towards goal, striking the bar, leaving David De Gea frozen to the spot.

The Italian who joined Chelsea in 2016 and steered the club to the Premier League title in his first season has indicated that he wants to be in charge of the club for "many years" and lead the Blues into the new Stamford Bridge.

But Mkhitaryan said: 'Let's not rush because it's only two games played.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan - Quiet first half but his quality really showed as the space opened up in the second period.

The Spaniard was not only United's best player last season, earning the complete trust of his manager, but he was probably the team's most important player.

Less than a week since United hammered West Ham United 4-0 at Old Trafford, the Men in Red once again kept a clean sheet for the second time in a row after they repeated their scoreline of 4-0, this time against Swansea City.

Mourinho went on to praise his substitutes after Martial stepped off the bench to score for the second consecutive game but the United boss also had a warning for his team.

Sadio Mane capitalized on defensive uncertainty to score a scruffy victor as a depleted Liverpool team beat Crystal Palace 1-0 for their first victory in the Premier League. However, despite not featuring in Swans' first match against Southampton, Sigurdsson had played a crucial role in taking back Swansea from the relegation zone last season.

"What I hope he doesn't do is forget what has taken him to Man Utd, to forget what his strength is".
