The international break is over and Manchester United would once again host Swansea City and would want to wrap things up quickly. The 2nd placed team on the English Premier League points table, Manchester United would once again try to get back to the fact that they are no longer in the UEFA Champions League and ending up on the second position is the best they can achieve in this season so they would like to dominate the game from the start. For the visitors, it would be a tough game but they just lost one match in their last five games so they would be confident enough to face whatever surfaces in theatre of dreams.

Our bet is on Manchester United for this game because if we go by the points table they are the better team in this fixture. Moreover, this game is to be played in their home ground, Old Trafford so it is expected that the Red Devils will get all the support from the stands. Addition to that, Manchester United lost only 3 of their last 16 home games so they would try to keep it that even after this game. On the other hand, the guests have failed to win 12 of their last 13 away matches in the English Premier League so it is going to be a very tough game for the visitors. Even in the head to head encounters, in the last five games Manchester United emerged victorious against Swansea City in all competitions so it won’t be easy for the guests.
