Comments:

League position: 5th Manchester United had now set a new club record of 25 games without defeat in the same season in the top division (won 13). The Red Devils had now reached double figures for home league draws in a season for only the second time in their history (11 in 1980-81 in League Division One). Wayne Rooney had now scored in 150 games in the Premier League (197th goal). Only Alan Shearer (190) had scored in more. Wayne Rooney scored from the penalty spot in the third minute of added time in the first-half to become the first player to score 20 penalties in the Premier League for United. Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: "We lost players and we lost points, so today was a bad day. We did not look tired and exhausted, we are tired and exhausted. You cannot isolate the performance out of context. This is the ninth match of April, it is not human. We have a squad of 22 that is reduced to 13 or 14 players. The players are very tired."

Comments:

League position: 18th Swansea City had lost their preceding six away games in the Premier League and failed to score in the previous three. The Swans now had 32 points from their 35 games so far in this Premier League season; eight fewer than in 2015-16 when they were in 15th position. Gylfi Sigurdsson became the fifth player to score in three consecutive Premier League away appearances at Old Trafford and the first since Sergio Agüero on 12 April 2015. Swansea City manager Paul Clement said: "My players clearly thought it wasn't a penalty, and seeing the replay the player [Marcus Rashford] has deceived the referee. It's clear. There's no other way to look at it. The ref seemed to have some doubts because there was a big delay and I spoke to him afterwards and he said he was only receiving confirmation from his assistants. It was a mistake. He went down way before there was contact."
