  • Alexis Sanchez celebrates his goal with team-mates

Romelu Lukaku scored his 100 Premier League goal and Alexis Sanchez ended his goal drought as Manchester United strolled to victory against Swansea at Old Trafford.

One of the major criticisms levelled at Mourinho has been the supposed lack of attacking flair and ambition shown by his team although those characteristics were clearly on display against Swansea.

The United boss had accused his players of lacking "personality, class and desire" on that occasion. After 20 minutes, United doubled their lead as Jesse Lingard fed Alexis Sanchez in after some shocking defending from Swansea and the Chilean finished sublimely to double United's lead and his own Manchester United tally for the season.

"Every point is vital because we want to stay in second place", United manager Jose Mourinho said.

The visitors made two changes for the second half as Tom Carroll and a Tammy Abraham replaced Ki Sung-yeung and Nathan Dyer.

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

It brought up a considerable milestone for Lukaku: at the age of just 24, playing just his first season at a top six club, he reached 100 Premier League goals.

"I'm really happy", he told the media.

"It is a dream come true".

Lukaku, who has turned out for Chelsea, West Brom and Everton as well as United, hit the mark in his 216th game, but where does that rank him throughout Premier League history?

Lukaku almost doubled his lead late on but a great save from Lukasz Fabianski kept United out.

"First half, they didn't cross the line, didn't have one shot, we press so high and strong, recovered the ball, had lots of movement and passing, we arrived in many unsafe positions, we should score one more". His movement off the ball and ability to drift into empty pockets of space proved vital for United's dominant first half.

Ty Lue to rejoin Cavaliers as observer
At 45-30, the Cavaliers are third in the East, just a half game ahead of Philadelphia and the Pacers. "Ty was Ty", Drew said. Lue has been on medical leave the past six games after he had stepped away during a game against the Chicago Bulls.

He does at least give The Swans credit for our fightback in the second half.

However, with his club second in the table and facing an FA Cup semi-final with Tottenham later this month, the manager remained upbeat.

Last season, de Gea managed 15 clean sheets, his previous joint best alongside the 2015/16 season.
