Manchester United take on Swansea City in Saturday’s early English Premier League action. Jose Mourinho’s side travel to Wales hoping to build on their excellent start to the season last week and set the pace for their title rivals ahead of the rest of the weekend’s action.
Mourinho has chosen to name an unchanged side from last week’s 4-0 win over West Ham United with the likes of Nemanja Matic, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford all starting.

It’s not really a surprise to see the Red Devils boss stick with the same set-up, United looked imperious against the Hammers and it would be harsh to drop almost anyone in the team.
The one man that had the greatest chance of starting though is again misses out; Anthony Martial. The young Frenchman came off the bench last week to score an excellent goal and many fans were hoping to see him in action from the start today.
While he’ll probably feature at some point throughout the 90 minutes, should he have been given the nod to show what he can do from the get go?
Manchester United fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…

I did want Martial to start but given last weeks result, an unchanged starting XI is deserved 👊🏼 #MUFC

Unchanged, not surprising really after last week's performance, happy with that but thought Martial might have forced his way in #MUFC
