A summer sunshine illuminated Old Trafford throughout the game.
Despite the welcome change in weather, today was a dark day for the Red Devils.
City now have one hand and a couple of fingers on the Premier League trophy after a 2-0 win away to Newcastle.
However, United did the job they needed to do and ran out 2-0 winners at home against Swansea.
Here are the United player ratings.
The Spaniard hadn't a lot to do today but whatever was thrown at him, he dealt with it well.
Struggled to deal with a first-half Sigurdsson shot, which bounced awkwardly in front of him but made amends after a magnificent save from a free kick from the same player.
Jones spent most of the day in the Swansea half and kept the quick Sinclair quiet all game.
One area which he needs to improve if he is to play right-back is his crossing. It was poor today.
Smalling was outstanding today, albeit against a tired-looking Danny Graham.
He was solid in defence and tidy going forward when he needed to.
Rio excels in games like this one.
Not much attacking threat and main job is to distribute the ball effectively. Played well but went off injured and could be on the treatment table for a long while.
Evra hooked up with Young well, as they gave Swansea's right side a torrid time.
Can still look shaky in defence and will have to improve next year after an inconsistent season.
Valencia is possibly more effective playing away from home, with United on the counter.
He struggled to pick out crosses, as the Swansea box was completely crowded. He did, however, set up Michael Carrick for Scholes' goal.
Again, it was quite pedestrian for Carrick in the middle of the park. He was very rarely pressed high up the pitch and found it quite easy to spray the ball about.
He must have gotten nosebleeds at some stages, as he found himself in very high positions throughout the game.
Probably the Man of the Match if you take Ashley Young out of the equation.
Possibly the last time Scholes will play competitively at Old Trafford, and what a performance that summed up a great season for the magician.
Provided a real threat and some great crosses that Danny Welbeck may have been able to put away. He will be hoping to improve again for next season.
He could have scored 4-5, but he did play well enough.
He cut a frustrated figure and received his first yellow card of the season. Rooney still lacks that leadership that he should have at this stage.
Hernandez didn't have the best of games today. He still seems off the pace and has suffered somewhat of a second-season syndrome.
He should get a deserved break after the Olympics this summer.
Did not have much time for an impact but did nearly score and kept things neat and tidy.
