Bad Blood! Mourinho Turns the heat on Chelsea's Conte


Bad Blood! Mourinho Turns the heat on Chelsea's Conte

A goal just before half time by Eric Bailly, his first in the Premier League, and late strikes by Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba, and Anthony Martial added the gloss to United's impressive performance.

The Serbia worldwide scored a stunning goal to help the Blues reach the FA Cup at Spurs' expense, but will now be focusing on matters in Wales rather than Wembley as Manchester United prepare to travel to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea City on Saturday lunchtime.

Mourinho left the 21-year-old out of United's opening day starting eleven, but Martial came on to score his side's third goal against West Ham. Last season Swansea lost 1: 3 to Manchester United on his own field.

Matic will be hoping to feature for the Red Devils when they take on Swansea City in their next Premier League game at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

Paul Clement's Swans badly capitulated at the end, after playing so well for 70 minutes, but United spotted a chink in their armour and like any class team, they went for the jugular and finished the clash in spectacular fashion. He was a key man in Chelsea claiming the crown under Jose in the 2014-15 season and knows what will be required to help United make a real fist of it.

The early kickoff time means this game will be televised in the UK: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League are the places to be.

United are aiming to maintain their 100% start after their comprehensive victory over the Hammers and Mourinho is backing the eleven that started last weekend to do the job.

When United broke from deep again moments later, it was Pogba who played in Anthony Martial.

"My question is, how many clubs in the world are powerful enough to buy the best players in the Premier League?".

Mourinho is also in the market for a wide player and United have been strongly linked with a move for Inter Milan's Croatian winger Ivan Perisic.

"They are a strong, powerful side and I think they will certainly be contenders for the title this season".

Jose Mourinho's side look much better equipped now to deal with sides who sit deep and try to frustrate them; their attacking verve was too much for a defensive-minded West Ham last Sunday.

Meanwhile, Swansea have revealed that top scorer Fernando Llorente will remain absent after the Spanish striker missed pre-season, and also the stalemate against the Saints with a broken arm.
