Comments:

League position: 14th Swansea City failed in their attempt to complete a run of seven consecutive games without defeat in the Premier League for the first time since January 2013. According to Opta Stats, the Swans had now managed only one shot on target in their two Premier League games so far in this season. City had now lost two of their last nine Premier League games at the Liberty Stadium. Swansea City manager Paul Clement said: "There were enough good things to say to the players we mustn't get our confidence affected by that. The second goal was even more disappointing than the first, I thought it was a gift. We missed tackles in midfield and then we were out of position at the back. They punished us and then we played to their strengths. "

Comments:

League position: 1st Manchester United had now scored four or more goals in each of their opening two league games of a season for the first time since 1907-08. The Red Devils became the second team to have won their opening two games of a Premier League season by four goals or more. Chelsea won both their opening two games in 2010-11 by a 6-0 margin. Eric Bailly scored his first-ever league goal after 67 appearances in La Liga and the Premier League. Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: "The word that describes the team now is confident. At the moment, everything is going in our favour, but it's not always motorway. You find difficult roads and roadworks."
