Manchester United lost to Swansea 2-1 as Louis Van Gaal faced his first defeat of the season. Garry Monk’s brilliant tactical change after United scored the opening goal led to the Welsh team scoring two goal immediately after that. United couldn’t muster a determined response as the hosts sat back and defended brilliantly.

David De Gea will be expected to take his place in the starting line up again as the Spaniard’s transfer saga is finally over. Van Gaal has to make a decision about Anthony Martial too.

United fans certainly would love to see some of the attacking verve of the Fergie years return to Old Trafford,Van Gaal will be secure in his job if he can provide that
