Roma are edging towards a win over Juventus in the early game in Serie A this evening, but there is plenty more European action to come.

Atletico Madrid, Monaco and PSG still to come...

Follow the action here.

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

I just hope @manutd come back and make a real fight for this league this season. Fingers crossed

What next?

There are no Premier League games until 12 September now - a whole fortnight off. A crying shame.

First up is Everton v Chelsea on the Saturday lunchtime, with other fixtures to look out for including the small matter of Manchester United v Liverpool...

See the fixtures here.

You've jumped the gun Gavin, we are yet to hear from the great man...

#Swans could aim for top four if they avoid injuries to key players. This is shaping up to be a very weird season. #bbcfootball

Sign a striker?

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville says on Sky Sports that United have to sign a striker before the end of the transfer window.

Jamie Carragher quite rightly counters by asking who they can get - now?

We shall see...

How come it's ok for Man Utd fans to slate their team? Any other fans do it and we're called 'fickle'

Sophie, Staffordshire

Michael Laudrup's biggest weakness was poor results against the top teams. Monk has got Swansea playing fearlessly against anyone.

Jon, Swansea

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Swansea are up to fourth after that fine win - Garry Monk was fairly non-committal when he was asked how high they can finish this season. But what do you think?

'We weren't at our best'

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Swansea boss Garry Monk on BBC Sport:

"It was an amazing atmosphere. The first half, Manchester United played very well and made it very difficult for us.

"We showed our character. I don't think we were at our best, but we were organised and kept our shape.

"They were causing us problems centrally. I changed it with four midfielders inside and that allowed us to get into the game.

"It is three points."

"I haven't got a clue what Van Gaal is trying to do.What's their system? Surely Manchester United have got to play with a bit more pace and thrust and tempo. They seemed desperate."

The team isn't to blame for the loss; that's a talented side. I'm blaming LvG; he never allows his players to play with freedom #bbcfootball

#bbcfootball Really poor performance today from the Red Devils. Starting to question if LVG is the right man for the job?

'We lost in five minutes'

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal on BBC Sport: "We controlled the game for 85 minutes but we lost in five minutes and that cannot happen.

"They changed the shape and we had to be compact. We forgot that maybe because we are too dominant. We have to learn from that.

"First you have to create chances, with scoring goals you need luck, that we don't have at the moment.

"I have enjoyed our football but you need the result and we lost again. All the players were very motivated to beat them."

A dream ticket of a pass Awal...

Instead of deliberating on Man Utd's poor showing, can we talk about the excellent pass from my countryman, Andre Ayew?

Awal, Wokingham

The only positive from this defeat is that LvG may finally realise that we need at least 1 world class signing before the window closes.

Elliot, Bristol

Any other business?

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was very non committal on the close of the transfer window...

He told Sky Sports: "When you are scouting players, you know already which players you can buy, it is not the last moment. When you see the game you will see we are the dominant team.

"You are asking me the same questions."

Keep De Gea?

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Ian Wright

BBC Radio 5 live

"Manchester United are cutting off their nose to spite their face. I would rather have David De Gea in goal whatever his frame of mind is. What's he going to do, deliberately let goals in?"

Monk makes the switch

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Interestingly, in the New York Times article on Garry Monk I mentioned before the game, Monk mentioned playing a diamond formation against United. 

Louis van Gaal should read our live page...

During the week leading to that game, Monk had made an unusual tactical change, switching from the team’s standard formation to a diamond-shaped setup in midfield. Despite having just a few days to practice it, the Swansea players did exactly what they were supposed to do.

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

So Manchester United couldn't cope with Swansea changing formations. Is that a concern, United fans? 

'We could not cope'

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal on Sky Sports:  "The opponent changed their shape and we could not cope, that is not good.

"We lost in that five minutes and it is a pity because we controlled the game.

"You have to be compact, we were probably too dominant to have the sense to do that.

"We could have scored much more goals, that is not the problem. You need a little bit of luck."

Maybe United should spend some of that money on replacing van Gaal with someone like Klopp instead of randomly buying players? #bbcfootball

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

For a man who will end his career as England's - and probably Manchester United's - all-time leading goalscorer, it is very interesting that a lot of people don't actually think Wayne Rooney is any good...

That's 10 Premier League games without a goal now.

Rooney 'too slow'

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Ian Wright

BBC Radio 5 live

"Rooney was taking too much time, he was too slow, and when he had the chance to shoot with his left foot he didn't take it. Manchester United just looked lethargic."

'We enjoyed that'

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

We enjoyed that. In the first 20 minutes United started really well but second-half we were magnificent. The players were so brave today and we were clinical when we needed to be. We went to a diamond in the second half and that helped us. We are a force in this league.

I'm definitely blaming the keeper John Hartson. We were poor but at the end of the day, shocking goalkeeping for 2nd especially #bbcfootball

Romero was at fault for the goal but no way was he the worst player on the pitch. Rooney awful again and Depay was a let down. #bbcfootball

The Manchester United fans are not happy...

Van Gaal - Absolute charlatan.

David, Southend

So by the end of the deadline, United might lose De Gea and Chicharito. We need goals and a solid keeper. Our transfer policy is a joke right now. United need two big signings by Tuesday night.

'We lost it in five minutes'

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

It is a big disappointment. We scored first and then in five minutes we lost the game. They changed the shape, we didn't react and we haven't learned a lesson from last season.

Think I'm beginning to understand LvG's philosophy. Be boring in possession with no attacking flair and get beat. #bbcfootball

#bbcfootball #MUFC Van Gaals tactics to bore the opposition to sleep are not working on the pitch, working perfectly off it. Out of date.

Ashley Williams is such an outstanding player in Swans' defence, he's been performing week in week out #bbcfootball

Player reaction

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Swansea captain Ashley Williams on Sky Sports: "It was a very difficult game. We didn't play as well as we have been. We had to dig deep.

"Any time you can beat one of the top teams shows our improvement. We keep working every day and every week. We want to be a consistently good side."

'Don't blame the keeper'

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

John Hartson

BBC Radio 5 live at the Liberty Stadium

"Don't let me hear Manchester United blame goalkeeper Sergio Romero for this defeat. Rooney was sloppy, on his heels far too often for a player of his talent, Memphis was poor after the first 20 minutes. Manchester United needed to do more."

'We went deep'

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

What's important is the game. We really wanted to win, it was a quite difficult game. We went deep into ourselves to win and it shows the mentality we have. We are very happy. The pass for the second goal was more important than my goal. It put us ahead.

Swansea deservedly in CL places with Chelsea & Man Utd already (out)played, Ayew & Gomis prolific & Montero still to return. Cracking start.

Glyn, Durham

I can't believe United have spent something like £300m in the last couple of years to create such an incredibly boring and ineffective team.

Dave, Manchester

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

No chance? Big call from John Hartson but Manchester City look on a different planet in these very early stages of the season.

John Hartson

"Manchester United have no chance of challenging for the title, I'm telling you that right now."

Swansea 2-1 Man Utd

Louis van Gaal has spent c.£230m on transfers in 14 months at Man Utd. Which is about £100m more than Swansea have spent. In their history.
