Rashford leads the line; Mata and McTominay on the bench against Swansea

Manchester United host relegation contenders Swansea City at Old Trafford in the Premier League this afternoon. United have beaten Swansea already this season and Jose Mourinho will be looking to do the double over the Welsh side this season, putting them in a position which could push them further into the relegation zone. Sunderland were the first team to be relegated this season, losing to Bournemouth on Saturday, which was five years too late in all honesty. The Poznan celebrating Sunderland faithful, soon to be unfaithful, as they will desert their club in the Championship will be wondering what they have done to deserve what has happened to them. Everything they have done over the years is so fitting on the result today. Swansea will want to avoid that, so a victory over this injury plagued United side could give them a stay of execution, which could see them through this season.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Young, Bailly, Blind, Shaw;

Carrick, Herrera;

Lingard, Rooney, Martial;

Rashford

Substitutes:

Romero; Valencia, Darmian, Tuanzebe; Mata, Mkhitaryan, McTominay

Swansea City:

Fabianski;

Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Kingsley;

Ki, Britton, Carroll;

Ayew, Llorente, Sigurdsson

Substitutes:

Nordfeldt, Amat, Fer, Borja, Olsson, Montero, Cork

United and Swansea have played 28 matches in all competitions dating back to the 5th September 1931. United have won 13 matches, drawn five and lost ten, which is not great form over the South Wales club. United have won the last two matches, the away match this season, winning 3-1 and the home match last season, winning 2-1. The three matches previous to those were all won by Swansea, who took advantage of a United side dealing with life after Sir Alex Ferguson. United will be looking to keep moment this afternoon, needing to keep Liverpool close, hoping for both them and Manchester City drop points with City playing just after United and Liverpool playing on Monday.
