For the second week running, Manchester United scored four goals, kept a clean sheet and Jose Mourinho is a very happy man.

Paul Clement's Swansea side were a stubborn opposition until the closing stages of the clash, where the visitors struck three times within the space of four minutes after Eric Bailly had earlier broke the deadlock just before half-time.

The arrival of Matic from Chelsea, in particular, has raised eye brows up and down the country.

The Serbian was a key part of the Chelsea squad which won last season's title but was surprisingly allowed to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.

His impressive and assured performances for the Red Devils at the start of the season has made him an instant hit among his new fans.

After Saturday's game, former United player and pundit Phil Neville trolled Matic's former club with a very salty tweet.

"Thank u Chelsea for matic wonderful gesture," he wrote.

That's exactly what every Man United fan must be feeling right now!

Meanwhile Neville's tweet will undoubtedly infuriate a lot of Chelsea supporters who can only watch on as their former midfielder now struts his stuff for their rivals.

As more time passes, that decision to sell Matic just looks stranger and stranger...
