Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said World Cup stars should cut out the play-acting but it is unfair to single out Neymar. Brazil forward Neymar has been heavily criticised for diving during the tournament but Mourinho said he was not the only one and accused England defender Harry Maguire of doing the same during the victory over Colombia. "People are focusing on Neymar, but if it was only Neymar I'd be happy -- but it's not only Neymar," he told RT.
Jose Mourinho has named an unchanged team for Manchester United's trip to Swansea City, while defender Victor Lindelof comes into the squad for the first time this season. Mourinho has kept faith with the XI that comfortably beat West Ham United 4-0 at Old Trafford last weekend.

Manchester United have completed the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea on a three-year contract. United will pay Chelsea a £40 million transfer fee, sources said, to reunite Matic with Jose Mourinho, who brought the midfielder to Stamford Bridge in January 2014. The 28-year-old becomes Mourinho's third signing of the summer after the arrivals of Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku and takes United's summer spending toward £150m. Mourinho told the club's official website: "Nemanja is a Manchester United player and a Jose Mourinho player. He represents everything we want in a footballer; loyalty, consistency, ambition, team player.
