Manchester United’s clash against Swansea City this afternoon is a must-win clash and that has been reflected in the starting line-up Jose Mourinho has chosen today.

There’s no rest for the likes of Marcus Rashford who will lead the attack supported by Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Wayne Rooney, who captains the side.
As we get into the tail-end of the season, Mourinho has opted for the strongest possible XI from available players with injuries still ravaging his team. The schedule is heavy but these are the games his first season will be defined by.
There is some good news on the injury front with the surprising return of Juan Mata to the bench. He underwent groin surgery just weeks ago but is now fit enough to be part of the match day squad.
That news along with the strength of the United team in general has delighted fans, who took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Mourinho’s line-up today…
If Mata is in the team today, how great would that be on his birthday week?! ????????Just hope he isn't delving back into the team too soon! #MUFC

Given our injuries probably best we could have hoped for looks like Rooney back in number 10 role behind Rashford. Mata back on bench! #mufc
