'Lukaku Will Get Even Better' - Mourinho

'Lukaku Will Get Even Better' - Mourinho

Jose Mourinho praised his players for a "perfect" first half performance as Romelu Lukaku scored the 100th goal of his Premier League career and Manchester United maintained their bid to finish runners-up. After 20 minutes, United doubled their lead as Jesse Lingard fed Alexis Sanchez in after some shocking defending from Swansea and the Chilean finished sublimely to double United's lead and his own Manchester United tally for the season. Then, even more impressively, Lingard assisted Sanchez in scoring the second goal.

Swansea are 15th in the Premier League table and five points clear of the relegation zone, with six games remaining.

"But I think everybody played really well in the first half".

"The first half was flawless", Mourinho said.

Despite the many accolades he's earned in recent years, De Gea is still yet to win the Premier League Golden Glove award for highest number of clean sheets.

Guardiola's side took their foot off the gas in the second half and Everton restored a little pride with a 63rd minute strike from Yannick Bolasie. Both Lukaku and Mourinho stressed the importance of finishing in second place for the season.

Liverpool ride their luck Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool rode their luck as Sadio Mane escaped a second yellow card before Mohamed Salah struck his 37th goal of the season to grind out a 2-1win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

As United coasted to victory, Paul Pogba, handed a start for just the fourth time in United's last 10 games, grew in influence and delivered two superb chipped passes that might have led to a third United goal.

"It is usual for us that we need to fight here, especially after a hard start, but it makes it more special at the end", Klopp said. "Otherwise, we continue to stay not so close and, with seven games to go, it will be hard to take a place in the Champions League".

Klopp quickly replaced the Senegalese and Liverpool took advantage when despite having one of the quieter games of an incredible debut season at the club, Salah proved the match victor.
