United registered their second 4-0 win in as many matches at Swansea City, fuelling hopes that 2017-2018 could be the season the club ends its wait for a 21st league title.

Jose Mourinho praised the "confidence, consistency and discipline" of his Man Utd team after their comfortable 4-0 win at Swansea.

At the age of 24, Pogba still has most of his professional career ahead of him Martial delivered a confident response when asked what his fellow Frenchman will have achieved in five years' time.

"There was happiness in our play", Mourinho said. "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.

Despite raucous home support, Swansea seldom threatened in the absence of the departed Gylfi Sigurdsson the injured Fernando Llorente, always struggling to deal with United's power and pace and by the end Jose Mourinho's side were bursting forward nearly at will.

United are now odds of 11/8 to win the Premier League title, which makes Mourinho's side second favourites.

"I would say he is probably the best midfield player in the world".

It will not be completely cloudy, but there will be lots of high clouds and mid-level clouds throughout the day. We'll warm into the mid 90's with a twenty percent chance of rain and thunderstorms in the evening hours.

"But the second goal we gave them was a gift".

"Let's see how we are when we are in difficulties, when we need the last minutes to win matches".

"His professional level has improved, he's working much, much better, so we are happy".

Mourinho was delighted with his team's performance but insists they are not getting carried away by their strong start to the season. Of course we had it past year but now we have a little bit of luck where we are scoring the chances we are creating.

Marouane Fellaini and super-sub Anthony Martial entered the play with Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata making way.

Writing in his column for the Sun, Shearer, who is a regular on BBC, is convinced that United's strength in depth will be the key to their success this season. A summer of heavy spending at Old Trafford has fueled the belief he could do so again, despite finishing last season in sixth place, 25 points off the top.

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.
