Jesse Lingard gives his thoughts following Swansea City 0-2 Manchester United

Manchester United training arrive Swansea City

First header in a long time.

Elsewhere, Bournemouth beat Middlesbrough 3-1, Bristol City put four past Crystal Palace in a 4-1 win and Leicester beat Leeds 3-1.

Tonight, that is Tuesday 24 October 2017.

Mourinho, who made seven changes for the trip to south Wales, praised his side's performance, and described the win as comfortable, but not easy.

"But I don't think [it was easy] I think they have a good squad, a squad with lots of options".

Victor Lindelof had come off the bench there and was culpable for both Huddersfield goals, but the £31million summer signing was given a vote of confidence as he took his place alongside Smalling and teenager Axel Tuanzebe in a three-man defence.

Man United succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to the Terriers last Saturday and Lingard admitted that the team wanted to make amends and move on from the loss at the John Smith's Stadium.

Marcus Rahford in action for United against Swansea. The young forward cooly slotted the ball past Swansea's goalie Nordfeldt.

Swansea's frustrations grew when Martin Olsson, the only recognised left-back at the club, limped off with a suspected hamstring pull.

In the 96th minute, the England youth worldwide headed home from a corner to put Arsenal ahead for the first time in the tie.

"Scott McTominay did very well, strong in the midfield".

Lingard then doubled his tally and the visitors' lead on 59 minutes with an exceptional header after a ball in from Matteo Darmian found him arriving at pace 16 yards out to header powerfully past Kristoffer Nordfeldt. It wasn't. Mourinho instead looked to Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, two players he needs fit for Saturday's clash against Tottenham.
