Manchester United vs. Swansea City: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester United’s pursuit of the top four continues when they entertain relegation threatened Swansea City on Sunday.

United enjoyed a good week, first beating Burnley 2-0 away from home on Sunday thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney.

During the week they held Manchester City to a goalless draw at the Etihad, despite Marouane Fellaini’s red card.

Swansea City recorded a much needed win at home to Stoke City, with Fernando Llorente opening the scoring.

Marko Arnautovic missed from the spot for Stoke and within a minute a Tom Carroll shot deflected in to seal the win for Swansea.
