Manchester United will be hoping to build up on their impressive start to the new season when they travel to Swansea for a Saturday afternoon kick-off. United eased to a 4-0 win over West Ham in their season opener, but they would be prepared for a fight against the Swans, who have been a tough opponent for them in the recent years. The Welsh side, who opened the season with a goalless draw at Southampton, will also be up for their first home game of the season.
Ahead of the clash against United, the Swans are unbeaten in their last six games. This run of games also includes a 1-1 draw against United at Old Trafford on April 30. The Welsh side have improved massively since the arrival of manager Paul Clement in January, but they will be without influential Gylfi Sigurdsson, who has joined Everton in a £45m move.
United currently sit at top of table owing to their comprehensive victory on Sunday. Both summer-signings – Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic – made impressive debuts and Jose Mourinho will be hoping for more of the same at Liberty Stadium.
The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 3-1 win for the Red Devils, but the Swans were under the management of Bob Bradley in that fixture.
Fernando Llorente has returned to training but the game against United will come too soon for him. Ki Sung-Yeung and Nathan Dyer will be other absentees for the hosts. United will be without the likes of Ashley Young, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rojo for the game.
Both Teams to Score bet has come true in ten of the last 11 fixtures between these two clubs.
The Swans have picked up four wins and two draws in their last six league fixtures.
The visitors have managed to win only three out of last eight meetings between two sides.
