Anthony Martial was an unused substitute as Manchester United swatted aside Swansea City 2-0 on Saturday afternoon.
Jesse Lingard buzzed around in the Frenchman’s absence, while Alexis Sanchez took up Martial’s favoured left-wing position and scored the goal he needed to boost his confidence after a stuttering start to his Old Trafford career.
