Between Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho is showing it’s best to hire those that you already have experience working with. Mourinho tutored both Matic and Lukaku when he was at Chelsea, and the duo have been brilliant in the first two games this season for him with the Red Devils.

For the second time in two games,United were overwhelmingly impressive. In both week one and week two they conveyed the kind of dominance that we used to see with regularity during the Sir Alex Ferguson era. The 4-0 trouncing of West Ham in the Premier League curtain raiser was followed up by another 4-0 destruction, this time at Swansea City.

Anthony Martial and the Rest of Man United Make Another Statement

anthony-martial

Anthony Martial is back to his 2015-16 form. That’s what we saw today in Manchester United‘s thorough 4-0 rout of Swansea City.

The Frenchman’s 84′ goal, his second in two games this season, means it’s time for Jose Mourinho to truly implement the Martial plan. Anthony Martial has proven now that he deserves a place in the first team. He was part of an attack that truly wore down the opposition, as United scored three goals in a four minute span (80′-84′).  That’s what United seems be doing this year, wearing teams down, and blowing them out, via a devastating counter-attack.

Manchester United central defender Eric Bailly admits that his club currently isn’t at the same level it used to be. Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, the Red Devils haven’t been serious contenders for the Premier League title and haven’t advanced deep in Europe.

United have only finished in the top four once in the past four years, and that was a fourth place finish in 2014-15. Bailly knows the elite history and tremendous prestige that comes with the United badge and he believes the club is ready to show the world that they are back at that level.
