Wayne Rooney put United ahead from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time after Marcus Rashford was ruled to have been brought down by Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski.

But Swansea earned a potentially important point when Gylfi Sigurdsson curled in a magnificent free-kick in the 79th minute.

United's injury woes continued to mount however with defenders Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly both taken off during the game.
