Swansea – Man UTD
Swansea City hosts Manchester United in a match from the second round of the English Premier League. We will examine this game in our football predictions for the weekend.
Manchester United are leading the Premier League table after the first round. This happened after the 4-0 win which Jose Mourinho’s boys recorded over West Ham United at the Old Trafford. It was a great debut for the new signign Romelu Lukaku, who scored two goals for the win.
Although a win over West Ham is nothing to be too excited about, United showed a great promise and it was a dream start of the season for them. After finishing out of the Top 4 last season, now the goal in front of the Red Devils is only one – the title.
Swansea on the other hand started the new campaign with a draw. They travelled to St. Mary’s to meet Southampton and the game ended with a 0-0 draw. The Swans had some chances to score a winning goal, but it didn’t happen. Still, a point won on away ground is not bad for a start of the new campaign.
Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are not avaliable for selection for Jose Mourinho. Meanwhile James Wilson recovered from his serious injury and he’s back to training, but maybe it’s going to be a while before we see him back in action.
Swansea can’t use the injured Nathan Dyer and Ryan Blair, while Fernando Llorente is avaliable again after missing the first game for the season.
It won’t be surprising if we say in our football predictions that Manchester United are the heavy favourite to win against Swansea. The Red Devils will surely fight for the title this season and this is the kind of matches which they have to win on a regular basis, if they want to achieve that goal.
