Hardly at fault for two wonderful goals from Van Persie and was let down by his defence for Welbeck's close-range tap-in.

Used his pace to great effect and played a pivotal role down the right flank, darting to and from the wing and the middle of the pitch.

Oozed confidence going forward and was an important part of an impressive Swansea midfield. Dropped deeper in the second half and dictated the play intelligently.
Had an impressive first half on the left wing before being substituted for Hernandez at half-time.

David de Gea
Largely untroubled, despite being beaten by an offside goal from Michu midway through the first half.
Attacked well down the left wing but often looked uncomfortable when defending against a Swansea side full of attacking power.

R. van Persie
Showed world-class technical ability to volley his side into the lead, before playing an important part in their second goal just moments later. Fired a rocket of a shot past Vorm for the third goal and was the star of the show. Constantly a thorn in the side of the Swansea defence.
Came on for Routledge alongside Bony at half-time and became an important part of a reinvigorated Swansea attacking force.
Came on for Britton at half time and immediately took his place at the forefront of the Swansea attack. Showed great understanding with Michu and scored a well-deserved late goal
