Schneiderlin started alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger in midfield and he regularly broke up Swansea’s forays into Man United’s half.
A glimpse at Schneiderlin’s stats during the game told you everything you need to know; 93% passing, two chances created, 100% aerial duels won, five interceptions and one clearance.
It was a superb display and one that emphasised how important Schneiderlin’s contribution is.
United are simply a better side with him in it, as his tireless work in midfield provides a platform for his teammates to build on. He will be hoping to keep his place in the starting XI as United prepare to begin their FA Cup campaign with a clash against Sheffield United next week.
