Stan Collymore has urged Tottenham transfer target Luke Shaw to quit Manchester United after more "disgraceful" treatment from his manager Jose Mourinho.
United are now standing at fifth spot in the Premier League table, having 17 wins from 34 games they played so far. In comparison, Swansea have played 19 games fewer - exactly half an entire league season.
"We didn't look exhausted".
"We lost players and we lost points, so yes today was a bad day".
Swarbrick awarded the spot-kick, which was converted by Wayne Rooney to put United ahead, after Rashford went down in the box in first-half stoppage time as Lukasz Fabianski dived at his feet.
"You are punished for doing well and if we beat Celta we have the final on the Wednesday and we play against Crystal Palace on the Sunday (May 21)", the Manchester United was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.
It is, however, the date of that very final which is causing Mourinho concern as his injury-ravaged squad could have to play two season-defining games within the space of four days.
United's injury list already included top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, record signing Paul Pogba and key defender Marcos Rojo, as well as defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling and Mourinho was understandably concerned.
Manchester United's Eric Bailly is treated on the pitch after being injured, during the English Premier League soccer match between Manchester United and Swansea, at Old Trafford, in Manchester, England, Sunday April 30, 2017.
The ex Chelsea boss is furious with his players and thinks that they are revealing too much about the club.
He added to BBC Sport: "The players were very frustrated and angry after that penalty decision at half-time, but we re-focused in the dressing room on what we had to do". The spirit is fantastic, the group is phenomenal.
Against Swansea, Lingard did little to impress with most of the creative spark coming from his fellow attackers Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. I would use cheat another time.
The efforts of Mata have not gone unnoticed, not by his manager, or the fans, who are used to fawning over the Spaniard for being an absolute gentleman in daily life, but now see him setting the example for other players to follow as a senior pro. "The keeper pulled out of it".
