MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Manchester United lifted the gloom around Old Trafford by beating Swansea 2-0 in the Premier League on Saturday, ending a three-match losing run that pushed the English champions to the brink of a crisis.

The relief was clear inside the iconic stadium after Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck scored second-half goals to revive a season that was in danger of derailing under new manager David Moyes.

The win not only keeps seventh-place United in touch with the top six but will go some way to restoring confidence after a chastening start to 2014 that saw the team defeated three times in six days.

Valencia swept home the first goal from close range less than two minutes after the break, before Welbeck glanced in a deft finish in the 59th for his sixth goal in his last six league games.
