Match: Swansea City – Manchester United
Date: 30 August, Sunday, 2015
Start time: 16:00
Swansea host Manchester United in the fourth round match of the Premier League. The match is on Sunday at “Liberty Stadium”.
Swansea made a good start after winning a point in his visit to “Stamford Bridge” to champions Chelsea in the first round, ended a draw 2:2. In the second round, they beat Newcastle 2:0 at home. Last weekend they left unbeaten and the visit of Sunderland after a draw 1:1. So Swansea is located at 6 th position in the standings with 5 points.
In the middle of the week the team had committed in the Cup standings. Swansey continued in the next round after beat the representative of the League 2 York City 3:0 at home. Team coach Garry Monk to rest some of the key players to be fresh for the upcoming clash with United.
In the team of Garry Monk not injured and suspended players. So Garry Monk can rely on all the best in his attempt to inflict first defeat on their opponents this season.
During the week, “”The Red Devils”” consumed brought against Bruges in the Champions League, having won 4: 0 visit to Belgium with a total score of 7:1 qualified for the group stage of the tournament. Three hits on the success achieved Wayne Rooney, who were the first goals this season. Added another goal Ander Herrera and Javier Hernandez failed to make the victory even more impressive, having missed a penalty.
The “Premier League” Manchester United is in fourth position with a total of 7 points. After the victory with 1: 0 in the first two rounds over Aston Villa and Tottenham last weekend alumni Louis van Gaal made 0: 0 at “Old Trafford” with Newcastle. Perhaps in this match had fatigue in the players after the first game with Bruges and this was the basis of poor game “Red Devils” showed.
Due to injury upcoming match will miss central defender Phil Jones. He has not played since the beginning of the season and the only absentee for the visit of Swansea. However, another central defender – Marcos Rojo will be ready for the game. Argentina may first fall in the composition of the new season after being sidelined for more than a month.
Last season Swansea beat Manchesatr United 2:1 at home, so they know perfectly well how to beat their opponent. Moreover, the “swans” and triumphed on “Old Trafford” when the two teams met in the first round of last season.
In a total of six visits to “Liberty Stadium” United has two wins, two draws and two losses. The upcoming match is a good moment for “The Red Devils” to make positive balance sheet in an away game at Swansea. However, I expect the home team to firmly oppose them and after traveling to Belgium in midweek opponent will have more chances of success in a meeting. In any case, expect “swans” to score at least one goal in the game. They scored in all three games of the season. United did fail to score against Newcastle in the last round and I think that this time they will perform better in the offensive plan.
