Premier League: Manchester United vs Swansea preview


Second-placed Manchester United can further consolidate their position when they host relegation-threatened Swansea at Old Trafford on Saturday. The two teams have already met twice this season and Manchester United won both matches with ease: 4-0 in the Premier League in August and then 2-0, also at Liberty Stadium, in the League Cup. Overall, Manchester United have won four of the last five direct meetings, but Swansea did enjoy a spell of three consecutive wins over the Red Devils in 2014-2015.

Manchester United secured their place in the FA Cup semi-finals with a 2-0 victory over Brighton before the international break, but finishing second in the Premier League is quite important as well since their Champions League campaign has come to an end as they got knocked out by Sevilla. The Red Devils have a two-point cushion and a game in hand on third-placed Liverpool, but third-placed Tottenham are just four points behind. Daley Blind and Phil Jones remain unavailable through injury, while Ander Herrera, Sergio Romero and Ashley Young are fitness doubts.

Swansea saw their FA Cup adventure come to an end before the international break as they got hammered 3-0 by Tottenham, but their Premier League campaign has been showing good signs as they lost just one of their last eight matches. That good streak allowed the Swans to climb away from the relegation zone, they are currently in 14th place, but 18th-placed Southampton are still just three points behind. Jordan Ayew is suspended for this match, while Renato Sanches, Wilfried Bony, Leroy Fer and Angel Rangel are injured.

Probable line-ups:

Man United: De Gea - Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Young - Fellaini, Matic, Pogba - Lingard, Lukaku, Sanchez

Swansea: Fabianski - Hoorn, Fernandez, Mawson - Naughton, King, Ki Sung-yueng, Clucas, Olsson - Abraham, Ayew

My prediction: Manchester United to win 1-0.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Man United win - 1.19
Draw - 6.00
Swansea win - 15.00

    That was one of the decent games United played this season but it came against out of form Swansea side and like in many other occasions United weren't able to build over their early lead.
    Swansea could be one of the teams in a big troubles at the end if their so poor form continues.
