Lukaku reacts to 100th Premier League goal; Here's it is

Man Utd Team News Injuries suspensions and line-up vs Swansea

ROMELU Lukaku became the first Belgian to reach 100 Premier League goals as Manchester United quickly regained second place in the table from Liverpool with a comfortable 2-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

The Belgium global netted the opener after five minutes at Old Trafford and Alexis Sanchez doubled the hosts' lead midway through the first half of Saturday's clash.

Lukaku's 100th goal came after just five minutes as Lingard picked out Sanchez in the Swansea area who squared for Lukaku to score from 12 yards, via a deflection off Alfie Mawson. Then, even more impressively, Lingard assisted Sanchez in scoring the second goal.

Manchester United maintain second spot: With Manchester City cruising towards the Premier League crown, United have made it a priority to finish in the runner-up position.

"But I think we let it go a bit, probably [because] six or seven players played global football midweek". The Belgium striker ran onto Sanchez's pass and scored with a deflected shot to put United ahead at Old Trafford in the fifth minute.

"We pressed so high and strong, and then recovered the ball", Mourinho said.

David De Gea kept his 16th clean sheet of the Premier League campaign against Swansea. He was associated with the team this year in the Winter Transfer window.

"They (Swansea) didn't cross the halfway line, they didn't have one shot".

José Mourinho began what could turn out to be a very chastening week for him with an extremely robust defence of Manchester United's season.

Guardiola's side took their foot off the gas in the second half and Everton restored a little pride with a 63rd minute strike from Yannick Bolasie.

"In the first half we did everything right, we defended very well, brought the line up, kept Swansea miles away from our goal, scored, had more chances, we played handsome". But everything is fine, we won and with seven matches to go every point is fundamental for us because we want to stay second.
