How we expect Manchester United to line up at Liberty Stadium against Swansea City.
Manchester United travel to Swansea City this weekend, hoping to exact revenge following the Swans’ victory at Old Trafford on the opening day.
With Red Devils boss Louis Van Gaal well aware of the hosts’ threat, but so too will the fans – and this match will make for some prime Premier League betting.
Robin van Persie and Phil Jones are doubts for the game at the Liberty Stadium, so Radamel Falcao is expected to start.
Here is how we expect Manchester United to line up against Swansea on Saturday:
Manchester United Transfer Rumours
Manchester United ready to launch £150m spending spree for Arsenal & Chelsea targets this summer
Manchester United legend blasts ‘miserable’ style under Louis van Gaal
GK – David de Gea
The goalkeeper is expected to keep his place in the side, ahead of his countryman, Victor Valdes.
RB – Antonio Valencia
The Ecuadorian has had little problem adapting to being a part of a flat back four, and has arguably been one of United’s most consistent performers this season.
CB – Chris Smalling
Smalling will be hoping for a repeat of United’s last league game where he bagged a first-half brace, after coming on as an early substitute against Burnley.
CB – Marcos Rojo
The Argentinian is still adjusting to life at Old Trafford, but Louis Van Gaal is likely to keep faith with the centre-back with Phil Jones doubtful.
LB – Luke Shaw
Shaw’s speed will be required to cope with the pace of Jefferson Montero, who tore Shaw’s ex-Southampton teammate Calum Chambers apart earlier in the season
