    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?

  10. '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."

    "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.

    "You are asking me the same questions."

  16. 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?"

  17. 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...

    Quote Message: 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.

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

  19. '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."

    There is something reassuring about the fact that the long ball still survives as a tactic at the highest levels. Manchester United know how to use it, but can Swansea defend it?The hosts piece together a neat move but it ends with an offside flag aimed at Jonjo Shelvey.

    Swansea turn it right around! Bafetimbi Gomis shovels them ahead but I'd stake my mortgage on the fact that David De Gea would have saved this.

    It's a peach of a pass from Andre Ayew to pick out Gomis's run, a real class ball, but Gomis's shot at the near post is not powerful and Sergio Romero's attempt to stop it was not up to scratch. Swansea don't care! The place is bouncing.

    Andre Ayew

    Another fine counter-attacking goal has Swansea level, and Andre Ayew has scored his third goal of the season! Ashley Williams picks off a loose pass from a red shirt, he sprints with it 30 yards before finding Gylfi Sigurdsson in space on the right. One touch and a fine cross in finds Ayew, and he heads down, into the turf, and in.

    Chris Smalling brings the ball out for Manchester United, nails jack Cork in a tasty-looking challenge and then pumps the ball into the box. Wayne Rooney is onside and it's a decent opening - but he hammers a volley horribly high and wide.

    A poor connection. But a very good game emerging...

  113. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    Brilliant effort! Remember when Bafetimbi Gomis was kicking off last season about not starting enough games? This is why.

    He tortures Daley Blind with a brilliant turn, hands off Chris Smalling and ten stretches to toe a shot against the base of the post. Unplayable stuff from the big man.

    "Gomis is linking up well with Ayew, his old strike partner from Marseille. He's making good runs, he wants to go in behind and stretch defenders. But Swansea miss that outlet ball that Montero gives them so well."

  115. CLOSE!

    Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    Gylfi Sigurdsson

    But that is VERY close! Swansea play in a quick free-kick into the penalty area, there's a clever step over and it runs into the path of Gylfi Sigurdsson.

    The Icelander hits it early, low and across the keeper - but a yard wide! Moments later United keeper Sergio Romero duffs a clearance straight to Jonjo Shelvey, who goes for the first-time lob but Romero recovers to save. Swans on song!

  116. CLOSE!

    Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    Not particularly close to be honest but Swansea's best moment. Andre Ayew with a lovely lofted through-ball, one he learned from dad in the garden, into the run of Bafetimbi Gomis. With Chris Smalling closing him down he has to shoot early from 20 yards and he screws the shot well wide.

    Best chance so far. Ander Herrera drifts into that hole behind Wayne Rooney and collects a pass from Memphis Depay, a half-turn and quick pass finds Juan Mata on the right of the area, and he shoots wide under pressure.

    Well played Ashley Williams! Wayne Rooney is clear of the Swans defence and looks certain to get a shot on goal, but WIlliams eats up the hard yards to get back and make a crucial challenge. Top defending.

    We are yet to see another shot on goal since that early Memphis Depay free-kick. Swansea do put together a neat counter with Bafetimbi Gomis involved, but it ends as Wayne Routledge plays a blind pass the wrong way.

    Wayne Rooney

    Manchester United have had over 80% of the ball so far as they pen Swansea back deep into their own half. Jonjo Shelvey does see some rare ball and tries to ping it over the top for Wayne Routledge but Matteo Darmian is wise to it.

    We heard this week that Michu - the man who won over hearts and minds with a stunning season in 2012-13 - could be released on a free as nobody wants to sign him.

    What are we missing here? Has he hit the bottle? Lost his love for the game? Deeply offended Garry Monk?

    Surely - surely - he's worth a punt?

    Michu

    Especially when you consider the prices being quoted for strikers in the embers of this transfer window.

    Well, he was featured in the New York Times this week anyway. A good read, my favourite line was this:

    Now, everyone calls Monk “Boss” or “Gaffer” (British slang for manager).

    "Things like the selection and the kitchen and the members of the staff, everything you can mention, he is involved," Van Gaal said in the Sun.
