There was no need to close the door.
"We tried to control the game by keeping the ball and creating chances".
Then, as the hosts pushed for an equaliser, United pounced, with Romelu Lukaku, Pogba (via a deft dink) and sub Anthony Martial scoring within a potent four-minute spell.
@Sampilger explained why he thinks Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be a pivotal player this season: "Pogba & Lukaku will get the headlines, but very quietly Henrikh Mkhitaryan already has 4 assists in 2 games".
"We are more confident, we know each other more", said Pogba, who is showing a greater attacking threat this season with Nemanja Matic patrolling United's midfield behind him.
Next on the horizon for Mourinho's free-scoring side is a clash against Leicester City next weekend as they aim to go into the first global break of the season with an 100% record in the top flight of English football.
Manchester United fans would be ill-advised to start dreaming about the title just yet but they will be heartened by another vintage performance in a 4-0 rout of Swansea which showcased their attacking firepower. From them on, it was a different song from Pogba. United won their opening three league games last season and finished sixth.
Merk, Under Armour CEOs resign from Trump's American Manufacturing Council

The Spaniard was not only United's best player last season, earning the complete trust of his manager, but he was probably the team's most important player. Find us on Facebook too! Video replays suggested the France global was level with the last man when he ran onto a flick-on by substitute Olivier Giroud and smashed in a rising left-foot shot. The club finally scored the only goal it needed in the 73rd minute with a bit of help from a Palace defensive blunder.
They both centred around Eric Bailly, who claimed his first goal for Manchester United on Saturday.
Strikers Ayew and Tammy Abraham worked relentlessly to pressurise United's defenders, but neither had a clear scoring opportunity as their team-mates struggled to hold on to the ball.
Swansea manager Paul Clement said that his side were "punished" by United. Although we had to defend more than they did, I thought our shape was good and we didn't let them have any real clear-cut chances.
Swansea was annoyed Pogba was allowed to remain on the field after escaping a second yellow card for a first-half foul when tripping Martin Olsson.
"We are using that to improve and next week we have one more hard match [against Leicester City]". "It's a hard one to take in the end".
