Mourinho insists Anthony Martial has improved professionally

The streets of Swansea played host to a huge party this afternoon as Martin Tyler and other Man United fans celebrated winning the Premier League title after just two games.

There was no creativity and - with the generous allowance of a Martin Olsson overhead kick as an on-target attempt by official statisticians - Swansea managed their first goalbound effort in two games.

"I look at some of my players and I'm sure that some of them will be better this season than they were last season, and Anthony is that for sure".

Memphis Depay regrets that he wasn't given an opportunity to impress in his second season at Manchester United. After laying into Lukaku's performance last weekend, the Arsenal legend picked up on the striker's movement.

The Belgian global has showed signs of improvement and Mourinho will be happy with the way he has performed in the first two games, as he becomes a key player if they are to win the Premier League. They have already done it twice and it is still August.

United romped to a second successive 4-0 win at Swansea with Eric Bailly, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial all scoring.

Man Utd are now sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League pile with six points and eight goals in the bag. It took Martial until New Year's Eve.

"We scored in the first half and in the second half it became easier, because they played with four defenders and there was space behind the defensive line".

"The first goal is always important in this league". It took them until October 24 and a 5-0 win over Blackburn to score four or more in a game.

The 19-year-old forward - yet to score this season - was a frustrated figure in Wales after he wasted a one-on-one opportunity, while his appeals for free-kicks were often waved away by referee Jonathan Moss.

Manager Mourinho was pleased to see United play with more conviction after struggling to finish opponents off at times last season.

"Let's see how we are when we are in difficulties, when we need the last minutes to win matches".
