Lingard save Manchester United; Swansea 0-2 Manchester United
Jose Mourinho’s men did well on last night game in carabao cup after beating Swansea 2 goals. Manchester United player Lingard double the match enough for the club to go for another stage on that competition. Mourinho as obvious praise his side for good performance on that match.
Here are 5 things that medias note after this match
Scott McTominay is majestic
Academy kid McTominay is very highly rated at Carrington and now we all know why.
The 20-year-old oozes class and confidence in midfield well beyond his years.
One shot blazed high over the bar in the first half, but that was okay – it just showed his uber confidence.
McTominay is definitely one to keep an eye on in the coming years.
Swansea focus on the league
Nothing about Swansea hinted they cared at all about this tie.
Club captain Leon Britton was in the Sky box, Paul Clement rotated his squad and the players seemed to be looking ahead to the weekend’s trip to Arsenal.
Getting out of this game with just a 2-0 defeat is perfect for them.
Still a dismal way for the 2013 winners to bow out.
Jesse Lingard loves a cup
Fans and managers may be a bit ‘meh’ about cup competitions.
But Lingard blooming loves them and he took his first goal beautifully and his second almost headed a hole in the ball.
Goals seem to flow easier in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup for the England attacker.
He has three in his last three in this competition and eight of his last nine goals of United have been netted in cup competitions.
Incredibly this was the first time since his debut on loan at Birmingham that he scored more than a single goal in a match.
Jet-setting Victor Lindelof needs a hug
Summer signing Lindelof has now started 10 games this season for club and country, they have come in nine different countries.
He’s tasted action from the outset in Spain, Bulgaria, Belarus, England, his native Sweden, Holland, Portugal and now Wales.
After his personal nightmare against the Terriers he needed to win over the fans and calm himself down.
It didn’t start well as failed to deal with an early ball over the top but he quickly improved and eventually impressed – still a long was to go before he is a regular though.
All he needs is a bit of loving.
No Huddersfield hang over
Jose Mourinho would have wanted a response from his second stringers to make up for the defeat to Huddersfield at the weekend.
The whole club were hurting after the shock loss and beating another potential relegation candidate was the tonic needed to lift the senior players in the dressing room.
The Portuguese boss didn’t entirely trust the XI he put out, as he stuffed his bench with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata.
