The Welsh outfit have been in fine form this season under Michael Laudrup. Summer signing Michu is the star act, netting thirteen goals and costing a mere two million pounds. They also have the talents of Danny Graham, Wayne Routledge and Pablo Hernandez to note. Dutchman Michael Vorm is still out injured and so Gerhard Tremmel will continue to stay in goal against the Red Devils. In this fixture last season United ran away winners in a tight one nil win; however the Swans have continued to improve year after year and once again will be tough opposition against Manchester United.
The league leaders have been in fine form in recent weeks with their strike force scoring goals from left, right and centre. Robin Van Persie has fifteen goals, Javier Hernandez has nine goals and Englishman, Wayne Rooney has scored eight goals in all competitions this season. On the other hand their defence has been below par. The Premier League’s teams are conceding the most goals ever which will please the neutral but Sir Alex Ferguson won’t be content.
The Red Devils haven’t kept a clean sheet in three games and it is hard to see them doing so at the Liberty this weekend. Serbian centre back Nemanja Vidic will be a welcomed return to the United defence however they will be without Rafael and Jonny Evans who recently signed a long term deal to remain at Old Trafford.
It will be a close game however United are in fine form recently and should take all three points.
