Lukaku records milestone as Manchester United defeat Swansea

Romelu Lukaku became the first Belgian to reach 100 Premier League goals as quickly regained place in the table from Liverpool with a comfortable 2-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

The powerful striker put his in within five minutes from a pass by Alexis Sanchez, who added the quarter of an hour later.

United, with record signing Paul Pogba back in the side, were dominant, although David de Gea did have to make two saves from Tammy Abraham.
