FT: Swansea City 0-4 Manchester United

A disappointing day for Swansea City with a 4-0 loss against Manchester United.

Eric Bailly's first United goal on the stroke of half-time set them on their way before Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial blitzed Swansea in the final 10 minutes.

After last weekend's 4-0 season-opener against West Ham this was another powerful message sent out by Jose Mourinho's side.

Strong and efficient at the back, United shut down opponents woefully short of attacking prowess following the club-record sale of Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton.

Last season's top scorer Fernando Llorente also remains absent with a fractured arm sustained on his summer holiday, and Swansea boss Paul Clement is in urgent need of investing the Sigurdsson cash to prevent another flirtation with relegation.

Swansea's only gripe was that Pogba remained on the pitch for the full 90 minutes as, with the game goalless in the first half, he escaped a second yellow for a similar foul to one which he had already been booked for.

It's confirmed! Swansea City will be in the Premier League next season

Swansea City will definitely be playing in the Premier League next season, after Hull lost to Crystal Palace.

Hull City were relegated from the Premier League with one game to go after a 4 nil defeat on Sunday.

The Swans beat Sunderland 2 nil on Saturday.

Boss Paul Clement said he's "a proud man".

I am very proud of what we have achieved in the second half of the season, especially when you put into context where we were when I arrived - bottom of the table with just 12 points from 19 games.

It's been a collective effort from everyone connected to the club; so congratulations to the players, backroom staff, club staff and definitely our supporters for their help in getting us over the line. I honestly thought it would go down to the last game of the season.

But credit to the players for showing the form they have over the last four games to pick up 10 points from a possible 12. They deserve to be where they are - playing in the Premier League again.

– Paul Clement, Swansea manager
