Lukaku scores 100th EPL goal as Man United beats Swansea 2-0

GETTYJose Mourinho's Manchester United welcome Carlos Carvalhal's Swansea on Saturday

The Belgian striker was joined on the scoresheet by Alexis Sanchez, for just the second time in his 11 United outings, in a routine 2-0 win over strugglers Swansea.

The Spanish shot-stopper has been in formidable form for the Red Devils this season, with his side having only conceded 23 goals in the Premier League, while De Gea himself now boasts a commendable 16 clean sheet record.

It's a serious achievement for a 24-year-old.

United were immediately on the front foot and Lukaku brought up his milestone within five minutes as his deflected shot from 15 yards out flew past Lukasz Fabianski.

Lingard himself had a pair of chances either side of Sanchez's strike but could not build on his goal for England during the worldwide break as he twice shot wide when well placed on the edge of the box.

Manchester United are now second as they aim to secure a top-four finish and the FA Cup title this season. United is two points ahead of Liverpool.

The Welsh outfit continued to look for an opening, but United slowly sucked the tempo out of the game, playing with their two-goal advantage without really showing the attacking verve that was on display in the opening stages of the game.

"We let it go a little bit".

"In the history of football all around the world, all of the biggest clubs have phases of continuous victories and phases of transition, and these cycles go on". "I thought that was it, "Au Revoir, see you later", but then it became even more odd".

Arsene Wenger may have lost his voice before Arsenal's home match, due to throat problem, with Stoke City on Sunday but the discussion over his future is unlikely to be silenced just yet.

"We were not happy so we moved things at the break and corrected the tactical things. with this we controlled the game better and won more balls".

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.

Chelsea was Lukaku's first club in England but he failed to score a league goal in his three years at Stamford Bridge.
