KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Jose Mourinho's side re-opened a two-point gap over third-placed Liverpool, who won 2-1 at Crystal Palace earlier on Saturday.

Manchester United eased past a Swansea side that was tacked down by a sense of laxity for the greater part of the game thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

"Sometimes that is not possible, but we moved the ball without any kind of fear and we controlled the game better with the ball, it's not easy to play Manchester United here, but we must keep the moment with the way we played in the second half". Additionally, David de Gea went uncontested most of the match.

The FA Cup still matters at Manchester United and tickets for the semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur were oversubscribed, but it is not the Champions League which takes place next week. "His recovery was good", Mourinho was quoted as saying by British media ahead of Saturday's Premier league clash with 14th-placed Swansea City. Having lost just one of their last six league games, they have pushed up to the 14 place and will certainly pose some sort of a threat to the Red Devils.

The clean sheet was De Gea's 16th of the Premier League campaign so far. However, once again they had to call upon their goalkeeper to save them.

United then invested £75 million in Lukaku during the summer transfer window of 2017 and have seen him hit the target 15 times in the Premier League, and on 26 occasions across all competitions.

It's worth remembering Lukaku is still just 24 years old, so the Belgian still has plenty of time to add to that impressive tally.

"Players with an unbelievable first half let it go down a little bit and they felt they had a chance and then David [de Gea] had to make a couple of saves".

"We got the points and are ready to fight stay in second position".

Jose Mourinho was in such good spirits after Manchester United beat Swansea that he invited rival manager Carlos Carvalhal into his post-match news conference. The Premier League action returns after a two-week break due to worldwide friendly matches ahead of the World Cup this summer. They have more hard games to come in the run in against Manchester City at the Etihad and Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium.
