Team News

  • Swansea may have first choice keeper Michel Vorm back between the posts as he is back in training having recovered from a groin injury.
  • Pablo Hernandez remains a doubt for the clash with United while compatriot Angel Rangel could also continue to miss out having done so against Spurs.
  • Tiendalli may continue to deputise at right-back, while Danny Graham will hope to start after Michu's threat up front was nullified by Tottenham last week.
  • Alex Ferguson could have the likes of Kagawa, Evans and Anderson all back in contention but they won't be rushed back into action.
  • Rafael is a slight doubt with a hamstring injury but should be fit enough to start, though he is vying for a place with Phil Jones.
  • It remains to be seen what centre-back pairing will be favoured now that Nemanja Vidic is back fit, with Smalling, Ferdinand and Evans all in contention.

Prediction

  • Manchester United were sensational in the first half against Sunderland last time out and will look to pick up where they left off against a Swansea side that were very disappointing at Spurs.
  • The absence of Pablo Hernandez was telling for Swansea at Spurs as they struggled to carve out opportunities for Michu so his inclusion, or lack there of, here may be crucial to the hosts.
  • United look in great form at the moment, however, and it is hard to see anything other than a reasonably comfortable away win on Sunday.

  • and Michael Carrick "hit the woodwork"?

  • Where's Van Persie's "Hit the woodwork" ?

  • 1-1

  • 2-3

  • We have to start collect those 'ugly' 1-0 matches ,because the conceding far too much silly goals this season! United had a lot of injuries in the defense this season too ,but we got Vidic back in time ,our captain is going to be a massiv part of our defense again ,no doubt about it! De Gea and Rafael is starting to shine more and more on very important matches this seasons! I know ,Fletcher is back and it's really good to see him in the United shirt again ,hes a true soldier. But Anderson is to inconsistent and injury prone, Scholesy and Giggsy probably hang up their boots and we don't Rio is going to be with us in the next season to. United need a good ,young midfielder like Strootman , Wanyama who can challenge for the ball and breack the opponent attacks. For this match I predict a 0-2

  • 3-2 to united, michu is class but not enough to get a point for swansea in this match.
