Manchester United will look to make it two wins from two games when they head to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.

Here is the team I think Mourinho will pick for the game:

Goalkeeper: David De Gea looks set to be Mourinho’s first choice keeper again this season after snubbing interest from Spain in order to remain at Old Trafford so Sergio Romero will once again be his back-up on the bench.

Defence: Mourinho went with a flat back four during the opening weekend win over West Ham and I think he’ll stick with that system against Swansea on Saturday.

Summer signing Victor Lindelof is going to be given time to settle in England before being thrown in to action so I expect we’ll see Phil Jones once again alongside Eric Bailly at the back.

Antonio Valencia should start at right-back with Matteo Darmian coming in at left-back meaning Daley Blind could drop to the bench despite a solid display against the Hammers.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic was outstanding on his league debut for United so Mourinho will be hoping for another virtuoso display from the Serbian international this weekend.

Ander Herrera was surprisingly left on the bench against West Ham so we could see the Spaniard recalled against Swansea with Juan Mata the man most likely to drop out.

The likes of Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini will provide options from the bench as Paul Pogba is certain to keep his place in midfield and he’ll be looking to build on a goal-scoring performance last weekend.

Attack: Marcus Rashford impressed in the left wing role during the 4-0 win at Old Trafford last time out so the England youngster should retain his place this weekend.

Romelu Lukaku enjoyed a dream league debut after scoring a well taken brace so the Belgian international will be looking to continue his form in front of goal at the Liberty Stadium.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan should keep his place in attack meaning the likes of Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial will have to make do with places on the bench.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
